Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi, I can help you with your question today.
There are a several reasons why we can see a cloudy appearance on the eyes. Has she been squinting at all?
The dark spot in the center of the eye is the pupil, which is surrounded by the iris (the colored part of the eye). Is the cloudy spot confined within the pupil?
OK, it sounds like the cloudy area is on the cornea, rather than the lens. Corneal edema can be caused by feline herpes virus, anterior uveitis, corneal lipid deposits, trauma, etc.
If she is comfortable this is not an immediate emergency, but I do recommend having her evaluated by your local vet. Along with ocular exam, we should measure her intraocular pressures, tear production and look for scratches on the cornea.
Based on these, we should be able to start treatment for her eye. If your vet is uncomfortable treating, they may refer to a veterinary ophthalmologist.
