Hi, I am a licensed veterinarian and I will be happy to help you.Everything you have described, is suggestive of of a possible ulcer or other injury to the eye, or some type of inner ear or nerve problem in the nerves affecting the muscles in and affecting round the eye.It is possible that there was some type of trauma or injury, or there could be other causes such as infection or affecting round tumor.I would strongly recommend veterinary attention today if at all possible.
