Default Tortoise eye problem

Hello ,

I've had my Hermann tortoise 5 years now and I've noticed the last month his eyes look strange . One is half closed the other hasn't opened in at least 2 weeks now . Should I get him to the vets ?? Not sure how to attach a picture yo this thread so you guys can see ??

Yes you need to get your tortoise to a vet. Two weeks with eyes not clear and bright is not good. Better to be safe than sorry.
Do you bathe your tortoise regularly?
