It is a dull black, not like the shiny other eye. It seals shut. I use his eye drops to massage and open the lid to put his med in. But then it seals closed again.

Any ideas about a salve that can be used to keep his lid flexible.

Well, as i mentioned before, I never use eye drops on animals eye infections. The vets always try to give me drops but I don't take them because I know they don't work as well as ointment so I always have Terramycin at hand because the feral kittens would very often get eye infections from herpes.
You can buy it without a prescription in Amazon.com or in Chewy.com - see here:
