Hi, I'm Dr. Peter. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.

Friend, the cherry eye itself does not interfere with vision. But, if there is mucus (goop) or pus in the eye this could be a sign of infection or dry eye which can lead to ulceration of the cornea, untreated this can progress and certainly interfere with vision. Unfortunately, we are very limited as to what you can try at home, I am sorry. I would have him checked by your veterinarian to perform a tear test and evaluate the eye. The medications used will be determined by the eye examination. In the meantime, you can flush and clean the eyes with over the counter eyewash. The day he is to see the veterinarian do not clean or flush the eyes.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done. Dr. Peter
