How do you know if a cat is going blind?

I have a male silver tip persian (BayLee) who is 13-15 years old. He loves the outdoors and we occasionally allow him to stay outside overnight. Last night, in particular was a cold night (35 degrees) and when he came in this morning, his one eye was a total different color than the other. He has yellow eyes. One was still yellow, but the other was a VERY dark brown and seemed to be red when lifting the brow. We didn't know if this could be a sign of blindness, death, or something that occurs when they get old. Any advice you can provide will be GREATLY appreciated. Thx.

Why are you letting a 15 year old cat stay outside all night? Anything could happen to him and it seems something did.

It sounds like there is some sort of bleeding going on. Take him to the vet right away!
