Cat eyes usually have 20/100 vision. Cats can see ultraviolet radiation but may have a hard time seeing the color red. Like dogs they have a tapetum lucidum which is a reflective layer behind the retina that sends light that passes through the retina back into the eye as this will improve the ability to see at night.
