    Anything that seems out of the ordinary with your cat's eyes warrants a trip to the vet.  Eye problems can be infectious, and can cause blindness.

    Having said that, it sounds like a "kitty cold".  Is it mucous-like discharge?  If it is, then you can get a triple-antibiotic ointment from your vet and some internal antibiotics to clear it up.  If it's anything else, it will require a closer look by the vet.

    Hope this helps!
