A few ways to lessen the intensity of the effect, not the bulb.

1. Place a light screening material that is heatproof over the top of the enclosure, like a light metal window screen, and do nothing else. Remove after 2 weeks.

2. Raise the bulb up 18 inches if possible and then lower it a few inches at a time once a week back to it’s old position. Be sure to do this whenever you replace the bulb.

3. Lower the basking spots.

You have already done #3, so steps 1 and 2 are options. Honestly, with corrective measures, his skin will heal. It’s damage to his eyes that you need to be concerned with now. He seems a light morph, so option #1 may be the best course of action for now.

In the meantime, research bulbs and determine if you really, really have to have the one that is there now. A weaker one may be better.
