Here are some of the things that may be irritating your cat's eye:

Conjunctivitis. This is when the soft pink tissue around the eye becomes inflamed and irritated. Possible causes are allergies or a viral infection.


Blocked tear ducks are a common cat eye problem for longhaired cats, especially the ones with a squashed face as in the Persian cat.

Cloudy Eye - Loss of clarity or transparency in the eye indicates an inner eye disorder. Disorders that can cause a cloudy eye are Keratitis, Glaucoma and Cataract.

According to this website: [Link](Mouse over link to see full location)
"A special characteristic of the cat's eye is their exta eyelid, which is called the nictitating membrane. If this extra eyelid is visible then your cat most likely has an eye problem."

The LAST thing you want to do is use any eye drops unless prescribed by a vet.

Cloudiness of cat's eyes is often associated with a reduction in the transparency of several parts of the eyes including the cornea, the lens of the eyes, or the fluid media that is actually in your cats eyes. It can best be described as a film like appearance that has suddenly covered your cats eyes as well as an increased cloudy appearance in the whites of their eyes.

If the injury is severe the eye may be lost, less severe injuries can result in ulcers forming on the surface of the eye, so take your cat to the vet immediately.
