Depends on the cause:
1) Physical damage
2) Nutritional deficiencies
3) Poor water quality
4) Bacterial infection

What size tank?
How long has it been running?
What are the water parameters (pH, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, anything else you have a test kit for)?
What else is in the tank?

Do you have a QT/hospital tank that you can set up and move this fish to?
If it is a bacterial infection it would be best to move the fish to a Quarantine tank. I would just do daily water (10%-20%) changes in the QT tank for a few days to see if this helps. If not then treat with a broad spectrum antibiotic

Only in a QT. Do not add to your main.

I have found IME that poor water quality will cause this to happen. Improving water quality by doing frequent PWC`s will help to alleviate cloudy eyes. I had a GSM that had this and I upped my PWC`s and made sure of excellent water quality and it went away.
