Cat with glassy eye and blood vessels

Help! My cat has been going through a series of eye issues. Glassy eye, blood vessels forming. He doesn't seem to be in pain, and is eating well.

We took him to the vet on January 10 and they did blood work. It all came back normal.

They said it could be a corneal ulcer and prescribed an antibiotic, Ofloxacin .3%. After about four days, his eyes cleared up nicely.

Now, it's back again! I made an appointment with a specialist, but they can't see us for two weeks. Just not sure what this is caused by. My poor baby.

I'm sorry to hear your cat is sick. I would guess if an antibiotic worked, then it's some sort of infection.

While you wait for the specialist, you might want to ask your regular vet if they suggest another prescription.

Unfortunately, your pictures did not upload for some reason. You're welcome to post them to the FB page (or via FB message) at and I'll upload them to this post.

Thanks and I hope your kitty recovers quickly.
