I am so sorry to hear that Skippy is having a tough time at the moment. Poor little man. I am sorry he seems to be afraid of you- quite often with eye pain, animals can become very head shy when applying treatment or trying to clean the area. This should resolve once the eye is better. The treatment Skippy will require will be determined by the diagnosis that is reached. By taking Skippy to a specialist, he will be sure to get the best care and they will be able to examine him properly and come up with a treatment plan that is most suitable for him taking his age and other factors into consideration.
I wish you the best and hope Skippy is back to normal very soon.
