Any tankmates?
Sharp objects (ie plastic plants in the tank)
Do you have any water stats eg amminia, nitrate, nitrite, pH, temperature?
Do you have a heater? What is the temperature?
How big is the tank?
How often do you clean it and how much water do you change?
Any previous health problems or symptoms?

Maybe, he hurt himself. I've never seen a betta before with one eye? You sure it's gone? How is he acting? Is his behavior normal? Is he eating? Just watch him a lot for some days

One of my friend's betta had a chunk of tail ripped off because her decor was sharp. I recommend taking out anything that tears a nylon when you run it over the sharpest part.
