Exclamation Help ASAP.. Albino hedgehog eye bulging with white spot in middle!

Hello!

So just tonight i noticed that my albino hedgehog had a white spot in his eye and he was trying to blink constantly with that eye.

The eye with the white spot also looked bigger in comparison to his other eye.

This is no puss that I can see. The little guy is 4.5 years old. Not sure of his parents health history as i got him from a breeder who rescued a pregnant female and he was one of her babies.

I read that hedgehogs can get cataracts but I'm afraid it may be worse. I guess they can also get inflammation from behind the eye or the eye can pop out or it can be cancerous.

Can anyone help me??

This is really something a vet should look at. Some hedgies have lost eyes, some hedgies have lost vision, but in both cases with proper medical treatment they've lived full, rich lives. But you'll want to get to the vet so that you can make sure the eye issues are not a symptom of a larger problem and of course to properly treat the eye.
