Clinical features include abrupt onset of painful proptosis, chemosis, ophthalmoplegia, and diminished visual acuity.
The total score of the signs (TSS) was calculated as the sum of the score of conjunctival hyperemia and chemosis, conjunctival serous and mucosal secretion, large and small tarsal papillae, limbal dots or nodules, and superficial wound corneal epithelium or corneal ulceration, obtaining a TSS from 0 to 18.

Based upon our own clinical experience with chronic conjunctivitis in cats and for the purpose of the study, sick animals comply with criteria such as manifestation of conjunctivitis (ocular discharge, chemosis, and conjunctival edema) lasting about six months and insufficient response to the standard ophthalmological treatment (history of the treatment with ophthalmic ointments and eye drops).
