Why are you concerned? What is leading you to think this? I would go into the disease section, fill out the sticky at the top, use photos if you can, and wait for a (better) reply there.

If he runs into things, won't follow your finger, flare or can't find his food then he may be blind.

One of my bettas started to lose his sight a bit when he was about 2 1/2, but I'm not sure how old he was when I brought him. I had to help him find food by keeping my finger over it. He couldn't see the pellet very well so he would miss a few times. XD

I'm gald your fish is doing well. It is a bit annoying helping a weak sighted fish eat. I don't know what I would have done if my fish needed more than glasses. >.>

even if he IS blind, there's nothing to worry about. having a blind betta is just like having a betta that can see. only difference is, you may have to train him to eat from a certain spot, and be a bit more careful with the decor you put in there.
