Good evening, thanks for your question. The expert you were hoping to reach is not currently available. I have stepped in to help you in their absence.

Do you happen to have a clear photo of what you're seeing in your cat's eye?

My name is***** and I will try to help you this evening. Are you online right now so that I can ask you a few more questions about your kitty's eye?

-can you shine a very bright light into the eye? Can you see the iris (the colored part of the eye)?

-does the pupil change shape when you shine the light in the eye?

-is the eyeball itself the same original round shape or does is appear lumpy or irregular?

-is there any drainage from around the eye?

Please let me know the answers to these question and if possible attach a picture of the eye so that I can see what is going on. You can use the paperclip button at the top of the typing box to attach photos.
