In brief: Absolutely
Cat dander is a leading cause of eye allergies.
If you experience itching red and swollen eyes during and after exposure to a cat, you are likely allergic. Allergy eye drops and oral antihistamines will improve your symptoms relatively simply, but the best treatment is avoiding exposure to cats.
