Default Hamster wont open one eye?

My 5 month old Syrian Hamster seems to only open half of her right eye. It seems to have sleep in it (sleep is that crust you get when you wake up)

What can I do and thx

Default Re: Hamster wont open one eye?

Usually the eye will open properly after they've been up a little while or cleaned it themselves. If it is like that all the time then you could try wiping their eye gently with warm water.

If it is red/swollen or looks infected then you should probably make an appointment with the vet.
