Eye Issue

Been a while since I posted anything, mostly because the snakes are doing well. However, after his last shed, I noticed Dr. Coil has a small obstruction in the center of his right eye (see below for the best picture I could get since he rarely stops moving). I don't think it's a stuck eye cap since it doesn't cloud the whole eye and it looks to be deeper inside his eye. Though I admit I haven't ever observed a stuck eye cap on either of my snakes. The thing it reminds me of most is a cataract. Any idea's what this might be?

Re: Eye Issue

Could very well be a cataract they are not unheard of in snakes. How old is this one?

He's 5 now. I suppose it could be a cataract, I just figured a cataract wouldn't appear so suddenly. Thanks for the reply.
