possible disease.

I have a Fantail goldfish that is possibly sick.  The water quality was not great (I am working to fix it) and I had to change it's food temporarily from sinking pellets to flakes (its back to sinking pellets now).  It has developed two "skin flaps" above its eyes and does have some issues seeing food.  As far as I can see there is nothing else wrong.  I think it is important to note that the skin flaps seem to be where it would pop its head out to eat.
