Sounds good, but just be aware that snake mites have no problem moving from room to room within a home in search of a host. This could easily occur within the space of a week or two once they leave the cage of origin, and that would be virtually a given in this case. As far as the eye issue, once the mites are killed, the eye will recover with no problems, and will be much improved after the first shed. It will also help to keep the humidity extra high just before the actual shedding so that the spectacle scales over the eyes and the attached intraocular skin come off cleanly.
