I recently adopted a 5 month old kitten from a shelter. Although he's white with an orange tail I think he might be part siamese because he's got blue eyes that look red when light shines on them. He's got lazy eye a little bit but what's started to worry me is his pupils are always dilated. A cat book I was reading says the pupil constricts in bright light to protect the retina. Could his vision be damaged over time? The more he plays, his lazy eye seems like it's getting a little better. Maybe he was in the dark a lot when he was small and his eye will "learn" what to do? Any thoughts?
