I'm sorry to hear of this with Conan. The clouding you're seeing can represent corneal edema but also more dangerous inflammation inside the globe of the eye such as could occur with either uveitis (inflammation of the iris and its attachments) or glaucoma (increased intraocular pressure). If only because eyes can "go south" in a hurry, Conan's vet will want to thoroughly examine that eye including fluoroscein staining of the cornea and assessment of intraocular pressure. Time is of the essence and so I encourage your having the exam performed at your earliest convenience.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
