Default I need medical advice to give to my vet

Hello there... it's been a long time since i posted about my old hedgie because he was doing well... untill he had an accidant a couple of weeks ago 😢
After a long day being away i arrived to feed my (long eared 7 years old) hedgie when he did not run to the food... i checked what was going on and i noticed that his tooth was stuck in a piece of fabric.. and i guess when he was trying to get himself loose he scratched his eye..
I rushed him to the vet the next day (who is clueless about hedgies.. just like all other vets in my area) and he gave me eye drop and cut the piece of thread that was hanging from his tooth but did not removed it completly because he wont opened his mouth..
After that he was eating well and his eye was healing but it looks cloudy and he lost his sight in it.
But in the last 2 days he stopped eating although he was trying to...
He is snoooring and making whizy sounds while sleeping.. he never make any sound while sleeping before...
I contacted many vets and all of them have never dealt with hedgies before..
So i need an advice about what to check on him and what the problem could be and what treatment and dosage should be done on him ☹️
I tried to open his mouth to see if the problem is from the thread... his gum does not look ok 😢
I posted this in the respirtory forum because of the new sounds he makes while sleeping...
Please help me 😢
