Seeing Problems with my cat
The last couple of months it seems as if my cat isn't seeing very well anymore.  He is about 9 yrs. old (male). He has not been ill, I haven't changed his diet or anything like that.
It appears to me that he will try to be looking at something and can't figure out what it is. He will turn and twist his head as if he can't focus on it, he will back away or jump away from something if he can't figure out what it is. These are just regular things that are around the house (like a pair of shoes on the floor, etc...) He's never been like this before. He'll sit on the edge of the bed and not get off because he can't see the floor. He was trying to jump on a chair yesterday, and jumped about an inch and just kind of fell off, like he couldn't really see where the chair was.  I can't see that there is anything obvious wrong with his eyes. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks!

vision problems are often a sign of an underlying illness that isn't showing other symptoms as of yet (your cat is just at that age where they start to crop up).

When was the last time your cat had an annual check up? It would be best to take him in and have him checked out. It COULD just be a simple ocular issue...which should be checked anyway.
