About a week ago, my cat, Storm got scratched in the eye. At first we thought it wasn't serious beause he usually spends hours outside and (occasionally) gets into fights with other cats. But most of the time it's just a normal scratch wound and not in the eye. It was in the eye this time and after a day of checking on it, we realized that it was serious. So we took Storm to the vet the next day. The vet only gave him a few wipes on the eye area and prescribed him with an eye drop. The vet did not mention anything serious and told us to give Storm the eye drops 2 to 3 times a day until it heals and that's what i've been doing. But today, it has been a week and it doesn't look like Storm's eye is getting healed. In fact, he doesn't even open the eye. I'm scared that it might be something else. If anyone has any answers pls let me know.. 

I have no problem paying for treatment but if it's something i can do to help heal or make his eye get better from home, i'd like to know.  

Please and Thank you !!!

My cat Kato received a small (minor) scratch to his eye a couple days ago, after which was immediately flushed with saline solution.
We've been checking on him periodically for the last 48 hours and the scratch appears to be gone however he's been keeping his eye closed or half shut. There's no swelling, no weeping, and no apparent pain when you touch the eyelid, and I checked for abscesses, but there are none of those as well.
What is going on; why is he keeping his eye closed? Is there something else I should check for?
We're in tight money these days so we really can't afford to take him to the vet if it's a problem that's small enough for us to be able to take care of, but we love our cat dearly and will take him if need be.
I'm slightly worried =/ I don't want to ignore something that could be potentially problematic to him later on, so please, if anyone can give advice or help I'd appreciate it!

I'm so glad to find info on this subject.I have been in vet field for over 20 years and have never seen a healthy 11 year old cat die in minutes with no signs of illness moments prior. Yesterday my head strong energizer bunny Sassy,an 11 year old tortie that had never been sick a day in her life,came to her forth of July breakfast from sleeping with my son.My husband fed her and my 4 other cats their usual breakfast. He was going fishing so went to put his shoes on in other room, within a minute he heard her scream. (Her brother always screams when he throws up a hair ball so my husband anticipated to be cleaning up puke but instead found my beautiful lil cat sassy flat out on the floor. ) He screamed for me and I flew out of bed and found her unresponsive on floor with my other cats peering into room wondering what happened. She was not breathing at all. I picked her up looking for foam, injuries or obstruction in her signs of anything out of normal except she was dead and within seconds after my husband heard her scream. All of my 20 years in vet service there was nothing I could do for her to revive her...and of course its Fourth of July so my vet wasn't open. I have never seen any cat do this and was at a loss. My instincts tell me heart attack but my vet says cats don't have heart attacks. Can be born with heart defects which she wasn't but don't have heart attacks like dogs....right now I'm devastated, shocked and looking for some sort of answer so I can stop all this guilt of not having opportunity to save her from whatever had happened...wondering if anyone out their had cat diagnosed with heart worms and this was their end result....unfortunately only way to stop this from happening to others is if we start doing necropsy when this happens to see what caused these tragedies. I have been present at these and they are horrendous to see our loved ones go thru but it's what needs to be done to find answers then preventions. In Sassy's case necropsy wasn't possible since my vet didn't open until today. I am making myself crazy with questions of what happened...All I can do now is know she didn't suffer, had 11 years with our family, she was extremely pampered, loved, slept in bed with my son and shared her life with us ,her brother and her 3 step sisters and brothers...Sassy puss you were one of a kind and will be missed forever..please come visit whenever you can....Rainbow bridge is a magical place.....

My 1 year old manecoon died last year a couple of days before Christmas. He came into my house, went into the bathroom, had a seizure and died. I recently found out that my neighbor (who hates any type of animal) had kicked my best friends cat and leaves antifreeze outside to kill cats and dogs that go through his yard. I'm so mad because my cat always stayed around my property and loved people. Loki didn't deserve that.

This is "Max", short for "Maximus". (Which my oldest son named him.) My mom always calls him,"her "Petey" dog, from the little rascals. He's a very intelligent American pit bull, so he knows his "gram" is talking to his, so he will go to her, even though she's the only one that calls him that. He's going on 6yrs old now.
