Sorry, but that was not a good thing to do to your anole. Bentonite clay absorbs water exponentially. Your anole lost her eye, because the bentonite clay absorbed all of the moisture out of her eye - pus, tears, mucus, moisture in the eyeball itself, etc. Shriveled it up like a grape (sorry, but that's what bentonite does!) All of that bentonite clay info on the internet is mostly "holistic health" type info and NONE of it has been regulated or even examined in detail by medical science - human or veterinary. So use at your own (or your animal's) risk.

BEST thing to do with an eye infection is to use an optical 'boric acid' ointment often proscribed for people by opthomalogists. If you don't already have that on hand (I did at one point, and it worked) you can use regular anti-biotic ointment like neosporin or polysporin, etc. It will say on the package not to use it on the eyeball itself (and I'd probably not do it for people) but it worked for several reptiles I've had with eyelids - lizards and turtles. I haven't needed to use it for a snake yet...

>>Have you ever heard about calcium bentonite clay? This is a therapeutic clay that draws toxins from animals and people.
>>
>>My female green anole developed an infection over her right eye, and it was getting really bad. She was really lethargic and wouldn't eat anything. I thought I was going to lose her until I decided to try to put the clay over her eye. The infection disappeared. Unfortunately, she lost her eye in the process, but she has returned to good health and appetite albeit a missing eye.

>>I would recommend to search the internet for places to buy calcium bentonite clay. The thing works on animals and people and can be used orally and topically. Just mix the powder in water and smear a coat over the bump a few times a week. If the mass is harmful, it should go away in a matter of a few weeks. Or even less if you apply enough. Note: There is no such thing as adding too much of this. He won't die of clay poisoning because it is all natural and contains no chemicals.

>>I hope this helps.
