Not quite sure what your whole question is, but you should know that you really shouldn't let your cat outside. By letting her out you are increasing her chances of getting into fights with other cat and animals, as well as increasing her risk on contracting diseases. You definitely will need to get her flea and tick medication (don't go for the cheap stuff, they have a bad habit of severe skin reactions on cats) since she's been exposed. If you really must let her outside, only allow this while you can watch her the whole time. It's much preferable that you have her on a harness/leash, or in one of the many outside cat runs that are sold. Be careful that your cat doesn't overheat by leaving her in the sun either.

Why would you let a blind cat outside? I once owned a blind cat and she stayed indoors. You really need to keep your cat indoors. Blind cats know their surroundings inside and cannot become familiar with the outdoors like their own home inside. Needless to say, there are many dangers outside for cats who have their vision let alone one who doesn't. Please keep kitty safe indoors.
