There is no reason why you cannot use hyposalinity on puffers providing it is done properly. They are much less tolerant of copper meds and can actually make matters worse in most cases. If copper is needed, the best recommendation is SeaChems Cupramine. It is quite effective and not nearly as stressful. The main concern with puffers is also secondary infection and often require antibiotics as well. Maracyn II and double the dose for 7 days should take care of most problems that will arise with parasitic secondary infections or most likely in their case cloudy/infected eyes.
The only "fish" that cannot be safely treated with hyposalinity are non-boney fish such as sharks and rays as well as all inverts both sessile and mobile.
