New Rams in QT

I got two new german blue rams today, they were not looking good at the petstore so I brought them home because I felt bad for them :(. Both of the fish are doing well, swimming, eating, they seem fine. One fish is missing its eye entirely, and both fish were in a tank with other fish that had pop-eye and were not looking good. I have read that pop-eye is the result of usually a bacterial infection or possibly TB. Neither of these fish appear to have popeye, but like I said one is missing its eye entirely. Should I be feeding them food medicated against bacterial infections? What should I look for to see if they have TB?
Thank you

use some medication to prevent an infection in the eye socket, soon the fish will heal with skin but will never regain the eye, just dose with some melafix to prevent a secondary infection.
