Can Ich Cause Fish To Lose One Of Its Eyes?

Rick bose

My tank had ich couple of weeks ago.
It's a 28g community tank with 5 red eye tetras, 7 rosy barbs, several zebra danios,several corydoras,3 bengal danio, 1 blue spot gourami and 1 zebra spot gourami.
So none of my fish are predatory fish and don't see any fish chasing or attacking others.
The ich that I had in my tank I have completely treated that and now my tank is fine.
I noticed one of my red eye tetras missing its eye after the ich was treated and thought that it was an accident.
The fish is ok and is alive till now.
Now today I saw that one of my zebra danios too is missing an eye though the fish looks active and healthy otherwise.
I have so many zebra danios that it's a chance that its eye has been missing since the ich but I have not noticed it.
So the question- can ich cause this or maybe some of my fish is doing this?(though all my fishes are peaceful and happy, never noticed any aggressive behaviour).

Answer is no.
But what or who is causing it, is the question.

probably one of the 2 gouramis or maybe the rosy barbs?
(not asked in the question but I thought rosy barbs liked cooler temps)

Could the other fish that I have like the rosy barbs or bengal danio - could they be the culprit?

See I live in India. So the temperature here is tropical.
The average temperature here is 85-90F.
In summer it is over 100F.
In winter too the room temperature is like 75F.
During the peak time of winter I have to use a heater just for 15-16 days.
I set the temperature at 74F during that time.
Rest of the time temperature stays high enough so don't have to use a heater.
So most of times here temperature is higher than required for most of the fishes.
But still here many of us have aquariums and lots of people here are passionate about fish keeping. The fishes survive too in our temperature.
It's very rare for any of my fish to die and I own 4 tanks.
So I think the fishes sold here in aquariums have adapted to live in this temp.
I can raise the temperature of my tank using a heater if it's cold but I don't know how to lower the temperature of a tank.
So I have no choice.
Forget rosy barbs, any aquarium fish that are available here requires lower temperature than here's.
But I think they have adapted as they thrive in our tanks without any problem.

So can noone here help me to identify the cause for 2 of my fishes to lose their one eye?
Can't anyone tell me the reason?
