how can I tell if eyecaps are retained?

Here's the scoop:

My bull snake shed in 2 major pieces, but neither contains the eyecaps. One piece contains the scales across the head between the eyes, but no eyecaps. There were a couple of tiny scraps, but nothing I could find among the aspen looked like an eyecap to me.

Is there any way to know for sure if they were retained or shed? His eyes seem clear to me, but like I say, I cant find the eyecaps anywhere.

1 adult bull snake: "Dozer"; 1.1 juvenile bull snakes: Oscar and Phoebe; 3 baby red-sided garters; 1.1 macklot's pythons
