Eye problems should get checked out as they can quickly cause blindness. My guess is that it is an infection, as it passed from one cat to the other.
Using Acrylic Interior Paint for Art Pouring Projects
I would think it could be used. You could go to the dump and get paint for free or to to any paint store for oops paint. That paint is paint that was returned to the store because it was the wrong color and is sold very cheaply.

A similar one by the Emerson company sold for $40 on eBay
