Default White spot on Eye of my Kitumba

One of my male Kitumbas has a white spot in the center of one of his eyes. He is eating fine and the tank water perimeters are good. The eye is not swollen or cloudy. Any ideas of what I may be dealing with?

This is just a guess but...
Assuming there weren't any prior injuries and the tank has been healthy thus far, I would think maybe it's just a scratch or ding on his eye lens? Maybe not bad enough to get infected (where they get pop-eye or cloudy eye) but enough to show a scratch or slight damage of some kind? Got any pictures of him?
I would probably try a big, fat water change and add a little regular aquarium salt and see how it goes for a few days.

You already got some good advice and a picture would help for sure.
