He's blind?

I was at Petsmart looking at the bettas. I noticed some dragon betta that one eye is just white like he's blind. And the other eye has white scales on it O.O I felt bad and wanted to buy him and provide him a good home. But he's blind? How would I go around to taking care of a blind one. Such as feeding.

without their eyesight, bettas can still smell. you can train him to eat from a certain spot in the tank. you can also give him a "it's dinner" signal. such as tapping the tank before the food comes if there is no watee movement in thetank, I've found bettas to be particularly sensitive if you create some ripples
