Chester’s eyes, the white part became red few months ago but it got better. Recently the redness came back. When he has red eyes, there will be mucus and crust formed. Also few months ago I also noticed Chester’s eyes is kinda bluish. Initially I thought it’s because of light reflection but I keep seeing it and that worries me.
As a result of the crust and mucus built up at the edge of the eyes, there are some black streak pattern there where the two eyes meet at the center.
So two weeks ago Chester visited the pet clinic. For the redness, doc diagnosed his condition as blepharitis which can be due to bacteria infection. However for his cloudy/hazy/bluish eyes condition, doc can only guess it’s either old age (nuclear sclerosis) or he has more serious condition such as cataract.
Chester has completed his antibiotics and eye ointment. Thankfully the blepharitis is healed.
Tomorrow Chester will see a pet ophthalmologist for his cloudy/hazy/bluish eyes. Wish us luck.
p/s: Both his eyes had blepharitis and are bluish.
Update 14th June 2014:
The ophthalmologist said Chester has nuclear sclerosis for the cloudy/hazy/bluish eyes due to aging. Fhewww. Thank God it’s not something serious. We noticed the redness of his eyes is coming back and the doc told me to bring him to her when that occur. She also told me to take notice of Chester’s surrounding such as new furniture, new floor detergent and so on which can make the eyes red. She checked his eyes for pressure and tear duct and they return normal. This checking is for glaucoma and dry eyes condition.
