Improper eye shedding of Brazilian Rainbow Boa

I came across a 4 ft. Male Brazilian Rainbow Boa and a Petco. While they do have a few reptiles, they usually have nothing exotic. The boa hadn't shed his eye scales in the last few moltings and they didn'y know quite what to do with him. I took him off their hands for a small fee thinking I could help. I've raised the humidity in his cage to 70-75% with plenty of spaghum moss and a dish for soaking. I've had him for 6 weeks now and he's shed three times in that span (why so much I don't know...) and the eye scales still won't come off nor is he accepting food. Does any one have any ideas??
