I would take your glider to the vet immediately.

wave Welcome.

I agree and think you should get to the vet soon. It could be anything from an abscess or injury that might be infected. If infected it will need treatment to bring down the swelling to relieve pressure on the eye.

Without a photo it is really hard to say what could be wrong, but either way a vet visit is needed.

Hi

Welcome to Glider Central. sounds like you really need to get it checked out by the vet.

There are a list of vets here who have glider experience: http://www.glidercentral.net/links/pages/Vets_Database/index.html or if you post what area you are located in maybe another member will be able to recommend a good vet for you.

Take a look at the picture that is attached. Does your glider's eye look somewhat like this? This was my Cricky when he had a sinus abscess due to a Staph infection a couple of years ago. The scabby area was due to the infection developing a fistula (a drainage pathway).
Your glider needs to be seen by a vet ASAP. Please have the vet do a culture & sensitivity if they are able to get a tissue and/or fluid sample from the infected area. In the meantime, the vet should prescribe an oral antibiotic and possibly a topical one as well.
