Weird looking eye?

Do you guys think her eye looks funny? She kept it closed since I got her. Sometimes she opens it and it looks normal but most of the time she keeps it closed and it looks weird to me. Here are some pictures.

Doesn't appear to be anything wrong w/ the eye, structurally, from the pic other than the fact that she has it closed in one of the pics. What kind of UVB bulb do you use? Supplements? Did she shed recently? Or is she currently shedding?

I’m not sure if she already shedded or is going to. It honestly could be either or, I got her 4 days ago. She keeps scratching her head and body on the branches. I use Arcaida T5 6% and I use Pangea cal without D3 and repetitive multivitamin with D3

How far away is the bulb from her highest branch? How often do you supplement each supplement per week? D3 w/ the multivitamin should only be given 2x per month.

The bulb is 7in away and yes D3 should be given only twice I month. I haven’t given her any only without D3 to dust feeders. I have only had her 4 days

Are you able to get any clearer pics? Also, is that her right or our right?
+1. IANAV. If it's the chameleon's left eye (our right), it looks like something is going on with the jaw on the same side (pics 1, 5, 6).

Since it's only 4 days, you might keep an eye on it a bit longer (finish the week).
In the meantime, if you haven't yet, I'd start looking for a herp vet in case things go south.

It looks like she is trying to open it but can't. You should take her to a vet (a good one that knows chameleons.) Where do you live? We may be able to help you find a good one.

Have you ever had a husbandry check done here? If not, I suggest filling out the forum while you try to get into a vet.

Yea I got one done the other day. I mentioned the eye but I figured this would be good to get a video. She will open it occasionally but she is scratching a lot maybe it’s shedding
