It’s entire popeye,injury,water parameters are too high, or infection. Or it’s just completely normal and that’s his eye and your freaking out. Oh and welcome to fish lore

So I just watched a video about feeders (look up the new king of DIY video). He mentioned that goldfish are very unhealthy to feed. You might want to take a look.

OP: It could be an injury since you just purchased them. Hopefully it will clear up quickly.

Like he mentioned in the video, it's best to raise your own feeders if you are set on feeding live. Otherwise, it's much healthier to find another option. (sorry OP for derailing ... last comment, I promise!).
