I don't know how to open that pic. But it's obvious he needs to see a small-animal vet or an exotics vet. If there is a piece of debris in it's eye, your iguana is in severe pain, possibly having it's cornea scratched badly every time it swivels it's eye behind the closed lid. |
This iguana is in desperate need for you to take it to a vet. If you can't afford that, then you can't afford to have an iguana.
Vets are generally sick and tired of ill-equipped owners pleading for pro-bono work.
If you don't get it fixed right away, the eye will become infected, oozing green mucous, and the infection will rapidly spread to it's brain. The retina is at the back of the eye, and it's nerve bundle runs through a hole right behind the eye, directly to the brain.
