Eye Problems


Turtles are susceptible to a variety of problems with their eyes. Various infections such as respiratory disease and fungal infections can affect the eyes in many different ways.

As they get older turtles can form cataracts and other serious problems. These issues can be hard to fix even by a veterinarian so generally the turtles will have to adapt to those changes.

If you notice any changes in the appearance of your turtles eyes it is best to take your turtle to a veterinarian for further analysis. Many times the problems with their eyes are the sign of a larger, more serious problem.
