eyesight

I have a rescued pedigree British Blue who is approaching her 20th birthday. I've had her two years now.
just recently she has started to bump into things.
I cannot detect any kind of cloudyness in her eyes or anything else unusual, although in sunlight they do not contract down to slits like they used to.
I realise that old age plays a great deal in a cats health, but is their anything I could do for her that won't cost the earth?
Oh she has a dribbling bladder problem too, but that may or may not be relevent.

I realise that the answer is proberbly no, but it is just so frustrating to see her like this.

Mt cat has hyperthyroidism and it could lead to high blood pressure that could cause sudden blindness if it pops the vessels to her eyes. We changed vets for a second opinion, and now are getting proper care.

I don't know too much else right now as I am still aquiring information. I suggest a search on this forum as many old post offer good stuff.
