i have had a close look at her eye with a magnyfying glass and cant seem to see anything.. i have bathed her eyes with cotton bud for first time tonight..

what was your beardies symptoms?
Usually you can see mites, they are particularly found around the eyes, armpits and folds (such as the beard). Have a look in these areas and see if you can find any mites. If you can't see any then I doubt this is the problem.
