Seriously.. my cat has attachment issues and can't be more then 2 inches away from me, this morning she scratched my eyeball, it was really sore and I couldn't open it, but I can now, it's still sore, at what point should I get this checked out?

Now. You'll need topical antibiotics.

God. Erm, how long ago did it happen op? How is your vision?

DangerousMouse Sun 01-Apr-18 10:29:30

really? I don't want to bother 111 as it's not crazy painful and I can see fine, but their claws are a breeding ground aren't they?!

A&e today. As pp said you need antibiotics and they need to assess how deep the scratch is and any other ointment thats needed.

You might need an ointment in it to help it stay moist whilst blinking is compromised as well as oral or eye drop anti biotics.

oh poo, ok thanks all I'll call 111

Good luck hope its sorted and not too painful. You might even get numbing drops to help with pain

Let us know how you get on op x

That's good. It's not good that you've been scratched, obviously, but It's good you're getting it seen to.
Can't imagine how painful that must have been.

Ouch! Hope you're getting seen to and it's not too painful.

Glad you’re being seen, OP, don’t take chances with eyes! Hope it’s easily sortable.

Thanks all, got some ointment and an appointment to go back as they want to do a follow up... now I can start on the Easter eggs!

Yikes do you have to put ointment on your eye ball. I shudder as I type
