Severe popeye and not eating!!

Hello everyone,
I've been searching around but haven't found any satisfactory posts on how to treat my betta so I am posting this now. Starting 2 months ago my betta hasn't been very healthy. He was in a tiny bowl for 2 months and then I moved him to a 1.5 gallon tank 2 months ago because he looked sick. At first he was doing great. Then his fins clamped again. And in the past month and a half or so, he has had clamped fins and tail and had Popeye about 2 weeks ago. His Popeye went away with water changes but now he has it again. This time in his other eye. Right after Popeye went away about 2 weeks ago, I tried bettafix to try to fix his clamped fins but didn't work. Also, his gills are looking like a bloody red unlike his red body. Another thing is that he started only eating one pellet a day a week ago and now barely eats, like 1 pellet every 2 days. Please help!
