It sounds like your cat has an eye infection. You can try to clear this up with terramycin ointment that you can purchase at most pet supply stores or online at Put it in your cat's eyes twice a day. If you do not see marked improvement in 2 or 3 days, you need to take your kitty into the vet for a stronger antibiotic.
