      I am not really sure about that. I looked it up online and the best I could find is a disease. Just do more research and see if you can find out what it is.

          A lot of times with reptiles once you see signs of illness, they're difficult to treat. Are you able to get her to a reptile specialist vet?
          That might be your best option now, since she's exhibiting other symptoms besides just her eyes...

          I hope you are able to figure it out and save her. I love turtles.

          All the best,
          cody

              That's very good advice. Over the years I, too have taken my painted turtle, my
              2 plecostomus (fish), and my pet birds to an exotic vet doctor when they were
              very sick, and that made all the difference between my pets living or dying.
              Yes, some people may think I was crazy to spend more money on getting my pets
              well than it would have to just replace them with a new critter of the same
              species. But I consider my pets to be members of my family, and my relationship
              with them as individuals made them worth saving so I never regretted spending
              money to get them well. I live in the Dayton Ohio area, and our local exotic
              pet vet is extremely knowledgeable and he has saved the life of all different
              kinds of wildlife who had all kinds of injuries or diseases.


              Your painted turtle sounds very sick and your best chance of helping it recover
              is with the help of a trained doctor. I hope you are able to find the care you
              need to get your turtle well.

                I was curious how things went with your turtle? Was the milky silk over her entire body or just in some places? Had you recently done any water change? I ask that because once when I changed my turtles water it got a little milky and thick, like nectar. I had the local aquarium shop test a sample and they said it just needed time for the beneficial bacteria to get established. It took about a week or so, but it did clear up and she was fine. I hope it turned out as well for your turtle.

                  Most sick turtles need vet care and antibiotics or other medications to live, depending on the illness. Good luck.
