Frankie did go blind. He had lots of baytril as a kitten when the vet was
treating asthma as an URI. It's the high doses that are the concern. You
might do a google search. My vet tells me he had the lower doses but he had
repeated doses. His blindness could be the baytril or genetic. No one can
tell me for sure.

Baytril can cause blindness but it is a rare complication.  I have had many
cats on it and none has ever gone blind.
