My Turtle won't open its eyes!

by Salema

My painted turtle who I just recently got is almost always on the basking stone. It rarely stays in the water, maybe because my other turtle bullies a lot. They have to be immersed in the water if I have to feed them. Today I tried to push it off the basking stone into the water to feed it but it just won't eat ((it eats a lot generally), then I noticed that its eyes were closed. I moved it a lot but it wouldn't open its eyes. I am very worried. It is slightly older than my other turtle, the pet vendor didn't give much details. Please help.

P.S How do we determine the gender of the turtles?
