Default Hamster Squinting One Eye

My hamster just woke up, and one of his eyes is squinting. He's also super jumpy. He wouldn't let me touch him, and he just ate some food from his bowl and immediately ran back into his igloo. As far as I can tell, it doesn't look red or crusty. It's just half-closed. But he's obviously uncomfortable.

He may have got something in his eye, see if it opens normally on it's own after a while if not then try to bath it either with just plain warm (not hot) water or cooled saline & cotton wool.

He's doing better! I guess there was just something in his eye and he got it out himself.
