I just got this year old rat from my local pet shop about a week ago andd...

I noticed the other night though is that Odo's (HIS) left eye I can notice a cloudyness, as if hes forming cataracts in that eye. Im thinking hes a bit young to have cataracts though (unless the previous owner/store lied or just really didnt know his age) So Im not really sure why he has it, if thats what it is... It seems most easily seen at night when I just have the table lamp turned on by the couches, just the way the lights hits his eyes in that way makes it more prominent I suppose because I havent noticed it otherwise. Its just hard to tell what it is really because even his other eye isnt all dark...almost like if he has blue eyes but not
Ill link you guys a couple pictures from photobucket! Im not really sure how well it will work, I used my expensive HD camera to hopefully get a better picture for you (even though he was all wiggly the whole time trying to see the camera LOL)

Both eyes (notice HIS left eye, the slight cloudyness) awww he was interested in the camera haha

His 'regular' eye. It has an odd color to it? Is it supposed to be blue eyes?? I dont even know!

Comparing to his "normal" right eye its not as different but the line where the color is is more prominent in the right eye making me think that he kind of has blue eye color or something like that...but I dont even know! They just seem odd to me you guys. What do you think?

Please let me know if you cant see the pictures because I will shrink them and try to upload them otherwise..but I just wanted you to see the full size so they would be clearer!

He doesnt really act blind when he is out..I mean he IS cautious but I feel like thats because hes still getting used to the house and everything. Otherwise he looks around and climbs and jumps etc.

The one eye that looks cloudier also looks swollen which could be an injury.
