    A cloudy eye can be caused by poor water quality and/or an injury.

    So... you should probably have your water tested, and make sure that the parameters are good :)
    But if I were you, I would separate the affected fish (only if you have a cycled hospital tank ready) and treat them with a bacterial medication or feed them with some medicated food for a couple of weeks :) BUT NOT BEFORE YOU'VE TESTED THE WATER!! (And don't treat them unless you see for sure that there are no troubles with the water quality)

    Cloudy eyes aren't contagious.
