Hi there! We just adopted a couple of geckos that needed to be rehomed, and we have them fully set up with a 20g enclosure with a moist hide, a warm hide, a cool hide, and several other implements, and they seem happy and they're eating and generally enjoying life. But, one of them has come to us with some shed skin which is keeping both of it's eyes covered. We think it was due to low humidity and improper conditions in their last home.

I really want to help our gecko, and we want to make sure it doesn't happen again in the future. Has anyone seen this happen before, and done something which helps? Or, should I take it straight to the vet as soon as I can? Any advice would be wonderful. I'm going to add pics as well.

Get someone experienced to help you remove it, maybe try calling your local reptile shop.

Its not difficult, just requires delicate hands so I wouldn't advise a novice to do it. I've done it a few times

For the future make sure humid hide remains humid and temps all correct. I also see no mention of UVB which would def help. Animal also looks a bit underweight
