Possible cloud eye?

My gold fish developed what we think is eye cloud about two weeks ago. We put him in a separate 10 gallon and treated him daily with both melafix and pimafix. Like I said it has been two weeks and there is not much of a difference. There is now a black spot in the bottom of both of his eyes. I contacted a local fish store and she just said to not be concerned about the spot and to keep the treatment. But my father and I are wondering if there is a different medication we can start using to get him healed. Thanks

If your fish develop cloudy eyes, the most likely reason is poor water quality. Check your water parameters and perform water changes if necessary.
   It is possible that bacteria may be causing cloudy eyes. Look for other signs such as loss of appetite, bottom sitting, redness at the base of the fins .  Quite often cloudy eyes are caused by trauma such as netting, handling, or injury on sharp objects in the tank. Make sure you are as gentle as possible if you must handle fish and take steps to remove sharp objects that the fish may injure themselves on.
