I've never had any FELV related eye problems. Have had 8 or 10 FELV
cats. Have only seen them get anemia and lymphoma that I recall.

I had to take Autumn to the vet today. Yesterday I noticed that she
would sit with her right eye squinched shut. I tried to wash it and
she got mad and bit. I tried to give her overnight to resolve it,
but this morning she barely opened it. She kept sitting with her
eyes closed or in a loaf position. She wasn't playing or moving
much. I noticed her pupil wasn't dilating like the left eye. I made
the decision to get her in to the vet ASAP this morning. They didn't
see any lesions, but her eye pressure was 28. For comparison her
good eye was 14. They gave us a topical anti-inflammatory. Her vet
said that the inflammation is behind the eye and they don't know
what is causing it - possibly she could have given herself a black
eye somehow. The other option is that this is FELV related. Anyone
had something similar?
Her eye is now open because of the meds. She actually played a bit.
I worry about my little bug.
