    Default weird white gunk in eye -white's tree frog help

    I noticed one of my frogs has a thick white spot on his eye in the corner. Very small area and another white film coming in on top of other eye. I didn't see it a couple of days ago. The frog is eating fine and happy as can be. He looks great other then the eye. It's barely noticeable right now but I am worried and have a vet appointment Monday. Any idea?? 1. Size of enclosure - 18 x18 x 24
    2. # of inhabitants - specifically other frogs and size differences- 2 WTF
    3. Humidity - 70
    4. Temperature - 80
    5. Water - type - for both misting and soaking dish - dechlorinated water
    6. Materials used for substrate - rocks, coco fiber
    7. Enclosure set up i.e. plants (live or artificial), wood, bark and other materials.
    - How were things prepared prior to being put into the viv. - live plants, set up a month before put frogs in. They have been in for 1 1/2 years.
    8. Main food source - crickets
    9. Vitamins and calcium? (how often) feed crickets a calcium food
    10. Lighting - CFL
    11. What is being used to maintain the temperature of the enclosure - misting, covering as needed
    12. When is the last time he/she ate- yesterday
    13. Have you found poop lately- yes
    14. A pic would be helpful including frog and enclosure (any including cell phone pic is fine)
    15. How old is the frog- 2 years
    16. How long have you owned him/her 1 1/2 years
    17. Is the frog wild caught or captive bred- c aptive
    18. Frog food- how often and if it is diverse, what other feeders are used as treats- worms as treats occasionally, feed every couple of days
    19. How often the frog is handled- just for cleaning cage
    20. Is the enclosure kept in a high or low traffic area- moderate traffic
    21. Describe enclosure maintenance (water changes, cleaning, etc) water change once a week, clean with vinegar weekly

    we really need to see this eye to tell anything. can you take pic?
    Save one animal and it doesn't change the world, but it surely changes the world for that one animal!

    I'm sure you know, sometimes cloudy eyes are sign a of infection?

    Make sure the humidity is ok. - give the enclosures an extra mist with distilled water.
    Of course, be sure his water dish is as clean as possible--- filled with de-chlorinated water.
    You could post photos of the eyes? It's be a good idea to take photos anyway to make a day-to-day comparison.

    Good to hear you have a vet appt. That's great.

    Maybe it will look better after he takes a soak.
    Give the tank a good cleaning, wipe down all the leaves.
    Double check that there is nothing you might have overlooked that he could be rubbing on that might have abraded his eye .

    Is he chubby; does he have any folds of skin just above his eyes?

    Vitamins and calcium? (how often) feed crickets a calcium food

    This is not enough.
    You still need to dust the crickets with a high quality calcium and Vit D powder and dust with vitamins, but vits less often.
