If its only on the one eye, he probably just smacked it and its healing. It will take roughly 2-3 weeks to heal up. If he's eating and swimming normally I would not worry about it.

When we say goes away by themselves, we don't mean overnight. It will take a few weeks for it to totally go away. You can add some Diatom eating snails and or hermits to keep it tidy if so wish.
