Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I am sorry to hear about your kitten. Can you post the photos for you and I can see if there is anything I can tell you based on those? Thanks!
Also, do you feel that the eye looks any smaller or more sunken than the other normal eye?
Ok, thanks for the photos. The most recent one is a bit blurry but based on all of them I would tell you he needs to be seen by a vet, and most likely prescribed an antibiotic for his eye. I am concerned he could have a corneal ulcer as a result of trauma or as a result of something like feline herpes virus (don't worry, people can't catch it!).

The whiteness to the eye is probably corneal edema as a result of the inflammation in the eye.

Regardless of the cause of the issue, it is most definitely serious enough to warrant medical attention ASAP if you don't want permanent damage to the eye, and for the kitty's comfort! We are beyond the point where at home treatment is going to be enough for your kitty, she needs prescription medication. Your vet will want to examine her and put a special stain on her eye to check for defects in the cornea. I hope this information has helped to answer your question. Please let me know if you have additional questions. If not, please take a moment to rate our conversation so we can know if you were satisfied with your service and I can get credit for answering your question. Good luck and thank you!
