Not an emergency, but what's wrong with Wraith's eye?

He's never been very good at eating... He attacks his food voraciously, but it's almost like he has depth perception issues and can't quite see it. I noticed his eye looks a little funky, but it's hard to get a clear pic. Any ideas what might be wrong with it? I'm seriously thinking he may be partly blind/vision-impaired.

does your boy's eye appear swollen at all? If yes it could be pop eye.
How long have you been noticing his "funky" eye, has it been like that all his life?
Has he been struggling to find his food more lately?
From what I can see in the top of his eye it looks slightly cloudy, could you show us a picture of his other eye so we can compare them?

Not swollen at all. He has really big eyes and has since I got him. Little bastard moves every time I try to get a pic of him! Here's the other eye, for comparison, and a video of him trying to eat a pellet:

Ok seen the video, I think maybe he is suffering from blindness in one eye, there is slight clouding in the eye in the first picture, and he is clearly struggling in the video to locate his food, although that could just be his haste to eat
