What are the causes of a blind eye to turn white?

Corneal edema: There are a couple of possibilities, but most likely you are seeing a swollen cornea which is no longer clear and therefore obscuring the view through it to the colored part of the eye (iris).

Having a bloodshot is that bad? Am i going to get blind/eye cancer? No pain, swollen or itch on my eye, will it go away or is there any medicine?

This is due to a blood vessel leaking blood and is usually without cause. Sometimes straining or blood thinner can cause this. If it continues to happen, follow up with eye md. Could be episcleritis, use artificial tears. ...Read more
