Question albino cory with odd eyes.....

So i was sitting watching my tank the other day and noticed one of my albino cory cats eyes looked a little odd. One eye is white no red color at all and the other has a small pinhead sized red dot for color. after looking at my others all their eyes are nice bright red and about triple the size (red color) then the other.....i never noticed this before and it looks kinda strange. he is acting fine scavenging for food and swimming about. Any ideas???

Really don't have a clue, but if the cory is eating and acting healthy, probably nothing to worry about. Perhaps, the eye was injured at one time. I have a cory, that somehow lost it's eye in my care. Reading up, found lots of people have cory with only one eye.

Being "coated" white sounds like he's blind on 1 eye to me. But totally agree with Twistermom here - as long as he's acting fine & eating no worries.
