ABSOLUTELY you need to see your vet - this is his eyeball and he only has two of them. They need to last a lifetime. Honestly - with something that important I would not hesitate to see the vet. Go...now...please.....and let us know the outcome if you don't care to share???

Default cats spots on eye

My cat had similar spots on her eye more than 5 years ago, then another cat in the family got them, then the third cat in the family got them.... we lived in Florida too at the time. Always just in one eye. They don't seem to bother the cats five years later even... took my one cat in for an emergency vet visit not too long ago for a puncture wound, the vet asked how long the spots had been there, when I told her, she shrugged her shoulders and said not to worry about it then....

Default White Spots in Cat Eyes

Aloha! My most beloved Feline companion Sheeba developed the same spots two years ago at the age of five. She was hit by a car last year and I found her dead at the side of the road ten yards from my driveway. Since I have four more beloved Kitties it helped me to get over it. When I had visited a vet, she did the same thing as another commenter mentioned: a stained dye test, which was negative. Looking for all possible causes for these spots, we arrived at the possibility of Fire Ant Bites. Fire Ants are a nasty pest here. People and pets suffer equally from bites. As humans are relatively safe from bites to the eye (mind doing yard work - pruning shrubs...), our pets are laying on the ground frequently. Sheeba was an indoor/outdoor Kitty - despite our attempts to rid the house of Fire Ants, they are difficult to contain. Food grade Diatomaceous Earth really helps, but one has to powder the entire outline of the house and spots where they can enter.
Anyways, we have moved since and to my utmost horror, my Baby Boy Honeyboy has now as well the first spot on his right eye. There are Fire Ants everywhere here, too. The place we're in is transitional and it takes big efforts to eliminate the Fire Ants from around the house. I get stung an average of two times per day, in spite of the measures taken.
So, it may well be, that depending on your location, you have Fire Ants and your Kitty was bitten. It is not a noncontroversial topic here, as there are vets who say that Fire Ants cause the spots and others say they don't.
But after all considerations, it makes the most sense in our case, as many other Kitties and young ones at that come down with the same spots - all of them are exposed to Fire Ants, who have taken over the Hawai'ian Islands. All the best to your Kitty and you should get Feline eye drops with vitamins in it. Here is an image of Sheeba:

That's the best way I can describe their location. (the cluster of 4 white spots is my ceiling fan because we turned off the flash on the camera).

The spots seem to be beige in color and he's not squinting or closing his eye but I'm sure the spots are in his line of vision somehow.

I'm wondering if anyone might have any idea what these could be and/or should I take him to the vet. He got all his shots this past Saturday and was down for 2 whole days but then he was right back to normal. This is a very active cat and one of my faves!

Thanks for any ideas.

My cat has the same thing except just one spot. What is it? Just appeared today. Anyone? Going to the vet but it is identical to this photo.
