Cloudy eye treatment?

So Flash has developed cloudy eye over the last 2 or 3 days. I am trying to figure out how to treat it. I am having a hard time finding it though. Does anyone know off top of their head what I can use to treat this?

I'm stumped as to what caused it. The water quality is good... I actually have been changing it 2 times a week because I was keeping it clean because of his tail. The pH has not budged either. I have a feeling they put something in the water at the treatment place though...

The water has been staying at 79 to 80 degrees F and he is in a 5 gallon eclipse tank.

Maybe some aquarium salt can help? Why are you treating his tail for, fin rot?

He blew his tail... and he has this thing with sleeping against the intake tube. So I have been keeping the water a little cleaner hoping to see some progress on his tail regrowing.

I'm adding some aquarium salt now. I went ahead and did a water change hoping it will help. I have Maracyn. I know it's a broad-spectrum antibiotic and fungal treatment. So I am going to try this since it is the only other thing available. If I have to, I'll get something else Friday. I just have never treated this before.

You can use Maracyn one and Maracyn 2 together.

I've had it happen before if you medicate and keep the water clean with daily changes your betta should recover mine did :D I'm not sure what the medicine i used was called but just keep the water very clean do you use a water conditioner?

I use Prime water conditioner. His eye is starting to clear up after I began using Maracyn 2. Hopefully it'll clear up completely soon enough.
