film on cats eyes - Answered by Dr. Van Lienden

My 10 year old female cat..who seems very healthy in every other way has developed a condition with her eyes. Over the last 2 to 3 months we have noticed that a film will cover her eye from the tearduct area up and outward, sometimes covering just a small amount and othertimes covering almost the whole eye. She blinks and it will go away. It seems to be there mostly when she is very relaxed. If she gets excited she blinks rapdly and it goes away. She does not appear to be in any pain so we thought maybe it was a cold or something minor that would go away but it has not. This week I have noticed it more just in the edge (tearduct area) extending about 3 millilmeters almost every time I look at her. It is very thick and almost looks like skin from the inside of her eye. Her eyes do not appear to be leaky or forming a lot of drainage although there is some every now and then. I am thinking that I need to take her to the Vet. But I would like to have some understanding of her condition before I do.

Only other information that might be helpful is that we adopted a kitten that had fallen out of a truck engine in December. They love each other and play all of the time, so I thought at first that maybe she had gotten a scratch or something. But I cannot see one and it affects both eyes equally.

Thanks so much for any advice or information.
