This is was it says about Baytril and blindness.
"Retinal damage has been seen in cats when higher doses (such as might be used 
to treat a Pseudomonas ear infection) are used. This reaction is not common 
even with very high doses, but there is no way to predict which cats will 
react. Blindness, temporary or permanent, can result. This reaction has only 
been reported with enrofloxacin and not with other fluoroquinolones, as it is 
theorized that the biochemical structure of enrofloxacin leads to especially 
high concentrations in the feline eye (in other words, this reaction is 
theoretically possible with any fluoroquinolones but enrofloxacin is especially 
predisposed to causing this reaction)."

Yes blindness has occurred but in very high doses.  That is not what you are 
dealing with.
