My rat's eye is hazy all of a sudden

Has anyone seen this before? Her eye was completely fine and all of a sudden it looked hazy and seems to be bulging a little bit. It almost reminds me of cataracts or glaucoma. I'm putting a vet ointment in it. It has been 6 days since I first noticed and it hasn't gotten any better or worse. I believe she is under a year old.. maybe 9 months or so. I don't have enough posts to post pictures or else I would.. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you!

I would highly suggest you contact your small animal vet right away to get this looked at if there has been no change. Was this ointment you have been putting on her eye something the vet gave you specifically to treat your girl rat?

It could be an injury, could be infection, could be glaucoma (if its the whole eye), if its just a disk in the middle then its cataracts and nothig to worry about in older ratties. Watch for swelling and be prepared to RUN to the vet if necessary.
