2. Eye injuries take a very very long time to heal. They can actually sometimes look worse before they look better. You should see a change in a day or two ... now whether that change looks better or worse, depends on his particular injury.
Less painful is the most important part.
I'm glad you mentioned that it could look worse first, so that I'll be prepared in case that happens. Thankfully for right now it does just generally look less painful and like I said, not weepy.
I took some pictures of his eye today, mostly so that I can help keep track of progress. I thought they could also be useful to others in the future, perhaps, so I'm posting them here as well. They didn't come out as nicely as I'd like, but I wasn't willing to use a flash on that eye. Tomorrow when I'm home all day I might be able to catch some better lighting.
I think his eye is looking better today. Swelling was down a little this morning.
Overhead view (right eye is injured eye):
These were taken in between drops, so the moisture you see is from that. The fur under his eye is a little damp for the same reason.
I'm going to try to take a better macro shot of the eye tomorrow, because with the stuff reflecting in it it's hard to see the surface. He has a linear ulcer across the bottom of his eye.
