    I recently got a cat from a nearby shelter, but the problem she recently developed some infection in her right eye. Any idea of what it can be?

    As a pet owner, the first thing you should do is take your cat to a nearby vet considering the fact that your cat has been in the shelter with other cats. Make sure she gets a proper checkup and meanwhile if you’ve had any other pets around, keep them at a distance from her because you don’t know how contagious this infection is. As far as I know, conjunctivitis, corneal ulcers, and glaucoma are some of the common eye diseases a cat can contract. It can also be a mild infection. My recommendation is to take her to the vet as soon as possible or start with contacting vets online. If you know a vet, you can share the pic of the infection with them or getting help online is also an option.

    First, you need to make sure exactly what causes your cat's eye pain. Most mildly, the cat will have sore eyes caused by dirt, you can completely treat it at home by using physiological saline drops or eye drops. When you do not know what cat eye pain drops should not arbitrarily buy at the pharmacy, you need to ask your veterinarian to advise you. During treatment avoid cats to be exposed to crowded places and the environment is not guaranteed.

    If the disease is caused by bacteria or viruses, you should take your cat to a reputable medical facility for veterinarians to diagnose and recommend appropriate treatment. Do not let your cat sore eyes for too long because the condition may become more severe or lead to blindness.
    Rarely, in some special situations, such as a tumor causing complications that increase glaucoma. Your veterinarian may recommend eye removal surgery. This case is rare but if it happens then we have no other way.
