Eye Infection

I often encounter eye infections in kittens when they just come in, but today I got the worst case ever! The eyes were crusted over and after I finally soaked it enough to open them a bit, a load of pus and gunk came shooting out of there..that must have hurt!

I cleaned it all out and put some topical penicillin in the eyes, but I don't know if that kitten can see at all. Here's a picture, AFTER half an hour of cleaning!

You see the black stuff on top of the eyes? That's how the the entire face was, except the nose!!!!
