Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
There may be two reasons for the clouding: First, we can see a slight haze that is blueish to whitish in color. This is lenticular sclerosis. It is not well understood why this happens but it is believed that this is common with aging and we see the lens and cornea of the eye hardening with time. Second, this may be a cataract developing in each eye. You'll notice a thick, white pigment that cannot be seen through developing in many cases over part or all of the lens of the eye. This is often associated with diabetes.Lenticular sclerosis: http://www.carlsonanimalhospitals.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2016/04/ocular-lenticular-sclerosis.jpgCataract: http://www.about-cocker-spaniels.com/images/dog-cateracts-1.jpgIt would be ideal to have your Staffie's eyes evaluated to ensure there is no medical condition that needs to be treated.
