You're quite right, the eyes do look cloudy before shedding, but they then go clear again (sometimes for a couple of days) before the snake actually sheds... it's to do with the way the outer layer detaches from the eye.

Do you know when the snake last shed?

You'll know pretty soon if he is shedding... if he doesn't then best bet would be to keep him nice and warm and get him checked at a decent vet (not a bad plan to have any new snakes checked over by a vet anyway IMO)
