Caring for your cat’s eyes

Applying eye drops to your cat’s eyes

On occasion, you may be prescribed eye drops or eye ointment for your cat. Applying drops to a cat’s eyes is not always easy – see our video which walks you through the process.

Cleaning your cat’s eyes

Generally, you will not need to clean the area around your cat’s eyes. However, if you have a cat with a very flat face, eg. a Persian cat, it may well have eyes which water constantly which will need wiping on a regular basis.

Gently wipe with a cotton wool ball dampened with clean water or a little baby oil. Use a separate ball for each eye and dry with a soft tissue.

Great care should be taken not to touch the eyeball – this will be painful and your cat will try to avoid the experience next time.
