Are they cloudy spots or very distinct and white?
It could be bacterial ... so, I might try Melafix as a gentle first option ... whilst also checking that the water is in tip top condition.
Imported fish can sometimes have eye flukes I believe ... but that too is very rare and there isn't any easy treatment.

Have you got anything in the tank ... like loaches, maybe ... that could have attacked your fish. They often go for the eyes first, I think.
If the eyes had been damaged then it might be a bacterial or fungal infection of the damaged parts of the eye.
As long as the fish looks happy and healthy, I'd still try Melafix but perhaps in combination with Pimafix too ... cover all the angles
Neither are very strong medications, though, they will just help the fish to heal itself. If the fish starts to look really ill, I'd go over and ask in the Emergencies section.
