Thank you for the information. Generally this is not painful unless we know that your cat has been hit in the face somehow. This can be an indication of a bruise of the eye which is painful. In almost every circumstance this is not an indication of pain but an indication of dehydration or generally feeling of illness. It also can be paralysis of the nerve that controls that portion of the eye/eyelid. This would not be painful at all. It should be checked by your vet, especially the hydration level and blood pressure but in cases where there is no history of trauma, this is not painful. I hope this helps, if not please feel free to ask more questions. Dr. Dan
