This is a discussion on one eye closed? within the Pacman Frogs forums, part of the Frogs & Toads category; I just noticed that Darwin has one eye wide open and the other one half closed. Is he ok?...

Not sure how to tell if he's sleeping, I tried to wake him up and he did react a little. There is a light on in the room on the ceiling, from no particular side
Hopefully it's just a vitamin problem that you can fix.
Are the pupils like that all the time, or only sometimes? Even in animals with visual impairments you shouldn't have one eye completely dilated and one completely constricted like that. Mine does something similar; when she's scared or excited her pupils will blow up regardless of the light around, and she will react if you move her but just barely. Keep an eye on him for any strange movements that might indicate something neurological is getting worse... Otherwise I'd say don't worry about it.
One pupil open and the other one closed is called "Anisocorie" in french (I don't know the word in english).
This is related to a neurological problem for humans.
For reptile and amphibians they have this propertie which is not pathological (Completely normal), except if it is all the time.
This should occur when one eye is shine by the light (The right eye of your frog on the picture) and the other one has no light on it (Left eye on the picture).
Unless its like that all of the time its probably just sleeping. How you could attribute that to a nutritional malady is beyond my understanding.
That's interesting. What defienciency do you think would cause this?
I'm no expert so its hard to say. Seizures can cause the eyes to do something similar to this as well.
He does open it a little further when I wake him up, but there is still a difference. But then I sneaked up on him last night at 3 am, and both his eyes were wide open...
He is getting vitamins three times a week, should I supplement more often?
oh ok, thanks, I thought babies needed to get it more often than once a week
