Betta w/ metallic eyes?

I bought a Dragonscale betta today at petsmart and he's very unique. He's a green-blue but his eyes are both covered quite a bit with the metallic blue-green as well. Is his vision impaired? Is this something I should be worried about? Thanks! :)

Some dragon scales develope pigment over there eyes...its not common but not unheard of. Of course his vision is going to be a little limited but as long as he can see enough to eat it should be fine...I believe there is a member some where on here who actually owns a blind betta and taught it how to find food with her help, so even if he is blind he is not doomed...I mean he made it this far didn't he
