Blind Gecko

Hello. I took ever care of a leopard gecko from a friend. They didn't know what they were doing. It appears that the shed has stuck to his eyes and never been able to come off. He is unable to see anything. I have been able to feed him and get him to put on some weight. But I cant figure out how to help fix his eyes. I'm waiting on an appointment with my vet. Any suggestions. It was hard to get a good picture. I will try again.

Are you sure it's blind? There's nothing to be done before you get to the vet except to gently rinse the eyes with warm water and make sure there are no small pieces of shed in there. If the gecko is truly blind, it can have a decent quality of life by being hand fed and by not moving the items in its enclosure around so it learns how to navigate its cage.
