you need a vet.

Puffy eyes can be a sign of an eye infection or an advanced respiratory infection. If he is showing any signs like sluggishness, loss of appetite, or hard breathing, he needs to be taken asap because they can kill a turtle in a matter of a few weeks. But even for just an eye infection he needs to be taken so he can get treatment.
