Might have smakced himself on the rock. Should be ok in a week or so. They heal up pretty fast

it looks like its getting worse because its getting more cloudy but the middle isn't and it looks very weird like the middle is perfectly clear and the outsides are almost white

Nothing you can do. It should heal. Sounds like he smacked it. I have a Scopus Tang, that smacked one eye, and it never came back, the eye socket is clear.

Maybe since his eye is giving him trouble, he is having a hard time finding the food? Try feeding him as directly as possible. I once had a clown trigger that wouldn't eat unless you put the food in his mouth!

And people wonder why we ask for water parameters first thing.

cloudy eyes happens when the water params are off or the water is dirty.lions are hardy fishes compared to some of the more delicate fishes in tanks.if the eyes deteriorate or become worst to the extent it hinders the fish ability to see only antibiotics and clean water can cure it.
