Pigmented eyes - would they affect his vision?

I fell in love with this betta and brought him home on impulse!

I see that he has some pigments on his eyes which gives them a bit of a glow - do they affect his vision?

I love his little mask and how ginormous his head is!



His name is Krieg!

He's gorgeous!! Congrats on a new little beauty~

Unfortunately, if the dragonscaling is covering his eyes, he will go blind soon. People have kept blind fish before, so don't worry, he'll be fine. He'll just be a bit more nervous than some fish if you change anything in his aquarium, and he won't flare at a mirror or anything, obviously haha. Once he gets to know his tank, if things stay the same, he'll be just fine. ^_^

My guess is that it does affect his vision but only partially.

The "pigments" look similar to the small scales that can form around bettas' eyes sometimes, specifically when they carry the dragonscale gene. One of my boys had the displeasure of these scales growing completely over his eyes, rendering him blind. I'm not sure if that's what this is, but your boy's eyes look exactly like mine's did in the beginning.
