The Cat with Contact Lens!

Cat with Contact Lens
Ernest, 15-year-old cat at the RSPCA rescue centre in Godshill, Isle of Wight, has got a pair of contact lenses. What contact lens and cat? Sounds odd, but it is true. The cat, who has lived at the centre for 13 years after he was injured in a car accident, recently suffers from entropion - an inward rolling of the eyelids, which causes inflammation and hinders sight.

Due to the complications, the cat had trouble seeing where he was going. And because of his old age, doctors avoided any operations. So, the ultimate solution to his problems was a pair of contact lenses. Recently a vet successfully fitted the contact lenses and Ernest is now doing well.
