The problem will become permanent if it is not treated. A blind turtle will probably die because it needs vision to find food. The Vitamin A may help, but a trip to the vet would be best.

Box Turtle Vison Problem
by: Michael Z

Hello. I have this Box-turtle I'm trying to help.. In his left eye appears to be a translucent film covering his whole eye.. (Like a cloudy membrane). I think he can still see out of it, but the eye's pupil seems to be smaller then the one on his right-side.. My question is; will some Vitamin A drops help dissolve this cloudy film.. ? Or perhaps, this poor Turtle has Permanent damage ? Please Help.. ( Reach me at )..Thanks
