Eye problem?

Eye open and closed

Eye open and closed

When i take off my quaker parrots cage cover in the morning, find him taking a waking up from a nap during the day, or enter the room I find he often has his one eye shut and it looks a little swollen but his other eye is open. He always opens up whichever eye is closed when i approach him. His eye does not appear to be pink or red. There are two little growths of skin on both eyes(one on the top one of the bottom) and I'm not sure if that is normal or not. Are these signs of a disease or problem? Thanks for the help.

Eye problems need to be seen by vets

Dr. B has answered this question for others before. He suggests that you take your bird to an avian vet as soon as possible. Your bird could lose his site, or possibly his life, if not treated - it all depends on the illness.
