Help please! I don’t know if my turtle has a swollen eyes. Please refer to the image below.

He’s active before but now he stays on his basking area. But when I feed him he eats up and poops after. I don’t know if he’s hibernating or sick. He also walks with his eyes shut and sometimes swims with his eyes shut but opens them afterward.

When I scratch his shell he wiggles and runs away but still with his eyes shut. Is that normal?

This is the picture:

So he only opens his eyes in the water? Why is he out of the tank? How often is he out?
