I've been giving them a break between meds, but did just the reverse of you and went from the med food right into the foran2 (?). I think it'll be ok.

Even during feeding time? Mine go crazy. One thing I'd suggest is feed them raw, shelled peas once or twice a week, it helps clean them out.

Hard to tell from the pics - is that white flakes inside the eye? or a white film outside?

If it is on the surface, and all water parameters are normal, then it is likely bacterial (so called fungus in fish is actually a bacterial infection (columnaris aka flexobacter).... true fungal infection is rare), and I might try a course of anti-biotic food. Eg. Romet B, Medi-Gold ...

If it is inside the eyes, and you see flecks rather than just homogenous pus like fluid, it may be a result of flukes (a parasite). Some sites said eye flukes are rare, others said that skin & gill flukes are common & might well show up in the eyes. Prazi is the first line of treatment here.

If it looks like it is on top of the slime coat, then it is unlikely to be an internal parasite like flukes.

You can carry on with the anti-fungal treatment in the water if it appears to be helping. Often, because of the thickness of the body, meds in the water don't work too well in goldfish. Most goldfish sites suggest going straight to anti-biotic foods or injectables.
