Question 10 week old kitten eye problem

Hello all
I'm worried about my beautiful 10 week old kitten, she acts healthy, eats very well, runs around and plays. She had a slight eye infection which the vet said to keep an eye on when she went for her 1st set of vaccinations last week (2nd ones are due in 2 weeks) the eye is no longer gunky but it has developed a whitish/cloudy mark on it over the last couple of days
She seems to be able to see properly,for example she can follow/chase a lazer pen
Ive attached a photo where you can clearly see the mark

She's going to the vets in 2 weeks anyway for her next vaccinations but considering taking her asap as I'm worried! Any ideas what it can be?

Hi, Charx74. Welcome to the board.

Frankly, we feel eyes are so important that if there's any problems with the dogs/cat's eyes, we'll take the animal in asap. Whatever is going on with your kitten's eye isn't normal and bears checking out as soon as you can get her back in to the vet.

She's an extreme cutie, btw.

It could be the third eyelid partly stuck down but I'd still Vet, to make sure. Also, ointments, pills, whatever, don't always work the first time or might not be the right one for that patient.
