I hope you get this in time to be of some help, but, while there are a few other vets knowledgeable about herps in our area the one
i would recommend is Dr. Edward R. Bennett. His practice is the All Pet Animal Hospital, 5007 Rt. 8, Gibsonia. Phone # is (724)444-6600. Mind you, I have never used his services, but he used to be a part of a local TV show on WQEX 16 (PBS) before it was bought by WQED 13. He is knowledgeable about herps, and has given some excellent slide shows about herp veterinary treatment at our meetings. If he is too far from where you live, give him a call, maybe he can recommend someone in your area.
In the short term, try increasing the humidity of your cham's enclosure - both of my knight anoles (lizards with similar eyes and humidity requirements) contracted eye infections during the period of time that my humidifier was broken. Increasing the humidity until you can find a vet may not help, necessarily, but it shouldn't hurt. I hope this helps.
: My cham looks like she has a growth in her eye and i want to have it checked out by a vet, but dont know any that know alot about herps. I was hoping you guys could send me in the right direction.
