The vet has seen it, but it wasn't his regular vet. She said that dogs and cats can get fat deposits in their eyes, but she looked it up in a book, and told me that it was most probably a bone fragment developing in his eye. She said that because it's not in the middle of the eye, that it's probably not affecting his sight at all. She seemed more stunned by this than anything.
Now, I don't know if it's in my head or if it's for real, but it seems like this "white thing" may be getting a bit bigger than it was origingally. Does anyone have any experience with this type of thing? ...and what can I do to make it go away, or at least not get bigger?
Any help is appreciated....

Ferrets, Rabbits, and Rodents has a paragraph on it. Several other references mention it. It's not uncommon in cavies and there is no treatment.
They don't know exactly what causes it in cavies, but the species does have a habit of putting calcium where it doesn't belong. That has been known for some time. Metastic calcification is also common in cavies where the Ca can be in various organs.
