Our avatar bunny was blind, so we made sure everything in the room stays in the same spot. She'd spend about ten minutes wandering around when we let her out to make sure of things and then she'd run, binky and all the other normal things and only rarely bump into something. She was so comfy she'd sleep in the middle of the room.

Yes I know hamster eyes are like but Arlo has cloudy eyes it's tough to see in the pics, but they are cloudy.

It's not even in both eyes it's only in one.

One piece of good news is cloudy doesn't always mean blind! You would probably know with behavior, but a vet can tell you if it's lenticular sclerosis (eyes look cloudy, but basically the animal needs reading glasses- small details are blurry ) or cataract (this is actual blindness).
