You might be correct; there can indeed be great variation in the growth rates of geckos. However, I really do think that further information is required before such statements can be made; offering reassurances before you are certain of the situation could endanger the leos well-being, especially when the OP has mentioned that the leo isn't opening her eyes, as that is certainly not normal.

OP: as has already been advised, could you provide details of you set-up (temperatures, substrate, decor etc) and pics of the gecko. Do you know how old she is? Or how much she weighs?
