Cat scratched my eye
Hello, approx 8 hrs ago my new kitten poked or scratched my eye, it feels like something is in there yet I've flushed my eye many times. My eye is red and looks like its bloodshot, I'm constantly blinking and tearing up and is slightly painful. Any help on home treatment would be helpful.
Thanks

Dear mike110,

I would recommend that you seek the care of an eyeMD to treat your eye. It sounds as if you may have a corneal erosion or scratch.
