Dear patient,
Thank you for your query at
I understand your concern.
What can be seen, looks like a corneal opacity although I am not very sure as both the snaps are not very good and clear. If it's a corneal opacity we can do a corneal transplant seeing the visual potential of the eye , or else the doctor can give you a contact lens to improve your cosmetic face value . Out rightly say, you need to show a corneal surgeon .
Feel free to discuss further,

Patient replied :

is there any cure for this? my right eye is fully blind. is there any chances that it could cause any problem to my other eye??

Dear Sir ,
Nothing can happen to the good eye , the eye with a scar has to be seen before we discuss or comment on visual potential

Patient replied :

ok :) may i know what might have happnened inside my right eye, which caused corneal opacity?? you said you are not sure, may i know what are the related diseases which are like corneal opacity??

thanks :)

I am sorry but there is no way a diagnosis and the cause can be elucidated from the snaps.
Kindly consult a cornea surgeon who can examine you physically and guide you.
