Eye Disorders

Home > Turtles > Diseases


Eye Disorders such as cataracts, infections and wounds can occur to turtles in captivity. Sometimes these diseases can be hard to spot so frequent observations of the turtles eyes will be necessary to spot any abnormalities. This is good practice when keeping any type of pet because the effects of any health problems can usually be minimized if they are caught early. This is especially true when dealing with the eyes of your pet as you do not want them to suffer any longterm vision loss.

Common signs include the formation of puss in the eyes as well as cloudy or sunken eyes. If you do notice a problem take your turtle to your veternarian immediately to have it checked out further. Your veterinarian will be able to perform tests on the eyes of your turtle to determine the severity.
