    Please help.

    I accidentally poked my cat, Toto in the eye a few days back. She looked fine but the next day I could see her third eyelid. Her eye was and is watery. s andShe seems fine besides the look of her eye. She eats and play's like normal. fMy mother called the vet and asked for advice. The nurse/vet who answered told her to buy some eye drops and that it will go away with that. I bought Hy Optic Eye Irrigation Solution I asked the salesperson who helped me at Petco if the drops would help, and he said yes. Do you have any other suggestions?

    Keep watching it and use the eye drops until her eye appears normal. If she doesn't seem in pain, she should be OK. My kitty Isis has chronic eye irritation and the drops do seem to help. Also, it's really important to keep the eye clean. If you notice any type of goop forming, make sure to clean it off as soon as possible.

    Hope your kitty feels better soon!

    If it were my cat, I would take her to the Vet. You don't want to mess around with their eyes.

    I was going to say what Grace has said. Eye issues scare me, and I am off to the vet right away. I don't want to risk permanent damage to the eye.

    If you don't see improvement on Monday, please phone your vet. With a holiday coming, they may have reduced hours so phone early.
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    Believe me, I wish I could. My mom says she doesnt have money right now. Specially, because its the gift season. I'm keeping a watch on her eye and hoping.it will get better. Thank you for the advice.

    She doesn't seem in pain at all. Whenever she's sleepy, she rubs against my hands like she always does and in that process she rubs her eye against my hand. I'll keep using the eye drops. Thanks so much! Toto loves you!

    At the very least, be in close touch with your vet's office.
