Coralo, a white (opaque) cornea indicates severe inflammation of the cornea and required the attention of Kofi's vet at your earliest convenience. Corneal trauma (ulceration, laceration, abrasion) and an increase in intraocular eye pressure (glaucoma) are the important differential diagnoses at this time. Did her vet check Kofi's eye pressure and stain her cornea with fluoroscein yesterday?
