She might have limited eye sight, but as she ages it will probably get worse.

she IS blind, or can at least see shadows and shapes. it saddens me when i see breeders trying to pass off blind bettas as new things like this. :I i have a soft spot for bettas like this, though, and want her. to spoil her forever in a gentle home.

blindness is more of a blue tint pale white color, like when a snakes eye when there going to shed soon. but it could just be a deformity

blindness is clouding of the eyes, more often than not white, or whatever color the dragon scales are, on top of the eyes. the betta in question is either totally or mostly blind. i had a blind betta who's one eye was almost totally white, the other was partly white. he could only see shadows and shapes, and was more skittish than most bettas.

yeah. :I blind bettas aren't anything to breed FOR.... their life is a little harder than bettas that can see, and there's chance for injury because they can't see....
