Maybe it's just a light reflection...
Maybe it can become a cloudy eye?
If you have the light on, I think it's probably light.
But just be cautious, because I think it can turn to cloudy eyes. Also are you using API master test kit? It's more reliable than the strips. Hear other replies too because I'm not really sure about it. My betta's eye is black, so something might be wrong. But if he or she is active, it may be the age or the light. Hear others!

Thanks very much for your reply. The light is on yeah, but you can see the white spots even when it's not on. Yes using the master test kit, the colours just aren't that easy to tell. My daughters bettas eyes is black too, that's what makes it so noticeable. Also I think if it was the light the spot would change position depending on the angle you were looking from, but it doesn't.

Oh okay, if it's not the light, I can't really say much. Just be on the look out for cloudy eyes
