She will be on eye drops for the next 2 weeks and has to go for antibiotics in 3 days.

    They said there was at least 2-3 stuck eye caps, and confirmed that it happened over a long period of time, through neglect

    anyways! Iím beyond relieved she gets to keep both eyes and can see now! The vet did warn me her next shed would be rough so she will need regular medicated baths when it comes to then, but tit for tat really if it means she can see.

    It was cute to see her re-explore her enclosure, she couldnít slither around fast enough to see what sheís been feeling this whole time
    That's wonderful news! YAY! You know, of course, that you just became her hero...

    Mu first snake was a $400 snake and I love him, my second snake was a pastel that was starved and had stuck shed and eye caps. He was miserable, well now that he is fine I swear I have a stronger bond with him my free snake than I do with the snake I waited a year to get. Lol
    Iím just a bill sitting on top of capital hill.

    Another update:

    She's waaaaaay more active now that she can see, I swear she hasn't slept yet and just keeps exploring her enclosure.
    She had her first set of eye drops today, plus eye lube. It stresses her out a lot. She's still a very good girl, never wants to hurt anybody, so she'll A) wrap around my arm and kinda seem to pull it away or B) pull away so hard I swear I'm hurting her.
    If anyone had advice on how to make it less stressful, if even possible that'd be great! I don't want to hurt her trying to make her better

    Aw thank you! Rescuing animals is nothing new to me, I really enjoy it because as danger noodle said you develop a special bond with rescued pets, which makes the experience soo worth the money and time

    Same here (rescues), and I agree with you both. Doing good by helping an animal in need just always feels better than simply buying one...you know for sure you made
    a bigger impact in their lives. Pets bring warm feelings to our chilly worlds...rescues can bring the warmest, in my opinion.

    I think she'll calm down some, there's just so much she has to get used to now.

    Angry

    Yet another update!

    She had her second set of eye drops (needs them every 8 hours) and this time I didnít have to hold her. She had her head up to where I could see her eyes, stayed still while I dropped them in, and even moved her head to the other side so I could get the other eye. Same with the lube, though once it hit her eye she started rubbing her face against her fake grass, it doesnít come off though which is good
    i think after the first time she probably was like this feels good, and so doesnít mind it now

    Another update:
    Her left eye started getting bad again, so the vet suggested putting eye lube on more than twice a day (now) to keep it moist since it looked a bit dry.
    She can see out of her right side, which has made her trust me immensely more (I suppose since she can see my actions / what I'm doing)
    At the end of next week she will be done with her medication / treatment. So I suppose I'll see then if her left eye is savable still

    To add: this whole thing so far has been 530$... Did not plan for that in my budget ����
    I can't wait to look back on this and call her my most expensive snake haha
