Default Blindness.

I know I just posted something about me being worried about my Eliza. I'm almost certain she's blind. She walks right past her house sometimes when she's about to go to sleep and tries to get in the corner between the wall and the house. She doesn't flinch when my hand is in front of her face unless she hears me make a noise. Her eyes get little eye boogers that I wipe out for her. Does it sound like she is blind? If she is what should I do differently for her than I would a hedgie that can see?

It sounds like she needs to see a vet, just like Larry told you in the other post. Hedgies normally don't have great eyesight so it doesn't mean she's blind but she shouldn't have discharge from her eyes.
