It looks as though there is blood in the eye, could he have hit it on something? It's also possible it's some form of burst blood vessel within the eye. I'd recommend getting him to a vet

As for the bar chewing, can you attach cardboard to the bars so he cannot chew them? This is a temporary fix until you get your new cage

Right so checked on Humphrey this morning and his eye seems to have gone back to how it was so it was something irritating him

Deanna, I am so sorry that I haven't seen this post until now, but I am so glad that Humphrey's eye is practically healed. What a relief!

That's great that the vet visit was a success. Awesome that the eye drops are working & that your hammys eye is almost healed if not completely healed by now. That's so kind of you to rush him to the vets right away, glad she is loved by you

That's a relief! Tell Humphrey to get well soon and to be braver about the drops
