Silver Dollar with Eye Issue

We just acquired a 55 gallon tank with some gouramis and a silver dollar. They obviously were under a lot of stress with the move to our house. Had some fluctuating water temps too as we tried to figure things out. Just noticed this bug guy has something going on with his eye. Should we be worried? Other eye is fine. New to all of this. Thanks!

He also does a little “shiver/shimmy” sometimes. Not sure if that is normal or not.

It's prob a bacterial infection. Eye cloud and pop eye are similar.

Yeah, it usually only affects one. I've had it effect a few fish, most survived. 2 lost eyes permanently. Only 1 died that i can recall
