I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Scleral (the sclera is the white of the eye) changes can be seen in quite a few disorders and include scleral ectasia/staphyloma, scleritis, episcleritis, nodular granulomatous episclerokeratitis, and necrotizing scleritis (rare). These are disorders clarified by a specialist veterinary ophthalmologist as can be found here: In general, it's best to have eyes attended to at your earliest convenience if only because eyes can "go south" in a hurry. I don't believe that his vomiting is related to his eye. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
