The uvb light you referred to,is it one of those coil lights? They have recently been found to cause burning! I know this from experience and did research on these lights after buying a new zilla 5.0 uvb coil light which resulted in burning the eyes of my high translucent veiled. It took weeks of antibiotic ointment to his little blind eyes before he was able to see properly again and shoot at his prey. It was touch and go for a while. There have been reports of these lights causing blindness. I also recall putting this light on my birds and the next morning they were unable to open them when sitting under the light. I thought they were just not used to such a bright light but now I know it was too strong and thier reaction was not normal. be careful when using these coil lights.
