Tegus eyes shut

She has been hibernating since November and just recently started basking daily. Today I noticed her eyes won't open when I was trying to feed her her first meal. New to tegus so not sure what it could be.

Perhaps a vitamin deficiency. Commin in captive aquatic turtles.
When my tegu recently did not open his eyes it was just the skin around his eyes shedding I just brushed it off and he was fine hopefully yours is that miner a problem
