    Are there other rats in the cage, something he might have gotten caught on, or any way he might have sustained an injury lately? An eye that swells and goes from black to brown may very likely have been injured and is hemorrhaging. The good news is that it does sometimes resolve itself, the bad news is that there is very little that can be done if it doesn't. However, even if it doesn't resolve itself, as long as it doesn't get infected then the rat can still live to die of old age, he just won't be able to see -- or will see very little -- out of that eye.
