I think my Zebra Eel is sick!

I have a nice Zebra Eel in my 120 Gallon tank. I just noticed today that one of his eyes is puffy and white. Seems to have a white glaze over his eye. Does anyone know what this might be, and what I can do to help my eel out?

Thanks!

Usually cloudy eyes can be fixed by doing frequent PWC`s and improving water quality.

I know fish can get the cloudy eyes if they get parasites on them. I would assume the same could happen to eels. Look closely and see if you can find any. They will look like a clear oval attached to the eye.
