Cat eye diseases are a common problem. However, many owners may not pay attention when their pet squints or rubs them. Without proper cat eye infection treatment, inflammation could lead to serious complications and, in some cases, even complete blindness. Therefore, manifestations of cat eye infections, injuries, and other vision troubles should not be ignored. Cat eye bacterial infections might also be a concern and should be addressed promptly.

Symptoms of eye diseases in cats may include:

  • Squinting or completely closed eyelids
  • Intense tearing, the appearance of pus, and crusting on the eyelids
  • Discomfort: The pet does not allow the owner to examine its vision
  • Enlarged pupils, mismatched pupils
  • Absence of blinking
  • Redness of the mucous membrane
  • Disorientation in space
  • Visible damage and changes in the eyeball and periocular area

If one or more of the symptoms mentioned above appear, it is essential to seek medical help.

The most common eye diseases in cats 

Among the common ophthalmological diseases that develop in our beloved ones are:

  • Conjunctivitis: The most common inflammatory sickness, which might be caused by allergies, mechanical injuries, weakened immunity, and bacterial infections. It may occur even in young kittens.
  • Keratitis: In this case, the cornea becomes cloudy, and the inflammatory process is caused by infectious diseases, kidney failure, vitamin deficiency, and mechanical trauma.
  • Cataracts: This condition occurs in older cats and leads to a gradual deterioration of vision. Unfortunately, it cannot be completely cured, but timely therapy can slow down its progression.
  • Eversion and inflammation of the third eyelid in cats: All of them have a third eyelid, the main function of which is to protect the eyes from injury and dirt. It is visible immediately after the pet wakes up.
