Help! Eye parasite/infection?

bumblinBee

I'm assuming this is a parasite, but please let me know if any of you have an inclination as to what this is. I've attached a video of my glowlight tetra (yes I am aware he has scoliosis, he's had it ever since I got him) and if you have a look at his eyes, they both have this white shape, almost an oddly shaped ring around his pupil. This is not present on any of my other fish, although my mother has a serpae tetra in her tank with something that looks very similar. Neither of us have ever seen anything like this before, and I can't seem to find anything online that matches this description.

Here is the video:


The tank has 0 ammonia, 0 nitrite, and 0 nitrate because I just changed the water. I've not had any hiccups with my parameters, I do 50% water changes every week. He's had these things on his eyes for well over a month now, I tried doing salt dips to see if that would get rid of it but to no avail. I can't dose the entire tank with salt either because I've got invertebrates and plants. Plus I don't really want to throw off the chemistry of my entire tank. I also live in Canada, so I don't really have access to medication. Really, I just want to know what this is. This fish is pretty old now, but I don't think they're cataracts...

Edit. Eeesh. Uploading on youtube cut the quality down a LOT. Here are some additional photos.
