Eye problems

This is a vet issue. Eye infections can spread to other body parts and ultimately kill a turtle. In the mean time, completely clean the tank. That means scrubbing everything in it. Be sure to rinse any cleaning agent thoroughly. The vet can give you specific information about your turtle and its habitat.
