Blue & Gold Macaw's eye has turned gold

I've had my blue & gold for 15 years and just the other day I noticed that his right eye turned a sort of gold color while his left eye remains the normal white. I thought maybe he injured himself somehow, but there are no visible signs of injury and the pupil pinpoints like always. He is also acting perfectly normal. Anyone ever see this before?

No, I have not ever seen this, and it indicates something wrong with his eye. Please make appointment with Avian Vet to have his eyes checked as this does not sound good at all. For him to be having trouble with his eyes does not mean you will see any of the normal signs of bacterial/viral infection illness, so please have him examined by your Avian Vet as soon as you can as the white turning gold is a sign of a possible infection in the eye or a disease.

Thanks for writing, Linda
