Hi, I would try and find another vet, eye problems like this in any lizard can be so many different things.
Respiratory infection, or other systemic infection, also can be a vitamin A deficientcy among other things. I speak from having many other species of lizards when I say if this has been going on all this time and now has affected the other eye and his weight is suffering I would certainly not wait any longer before I got him to a vet.

I would try and assist him in eating until I got an appointment. Hold a cricket to his mouth and rub gently so he knows it's there, see if he takes it. let us know how he does.

Maybe someone else can jump in here that has see this in leo's before and dealt with it. I have only had my leo's for a short time, but have dealt with eye issues in other lizards.
