What food do you feed him? And what food did the previous owner feed him? And how long do you have him?
This may be due to diet change.
The owner feed him like palette food, then i bought food from him when i got them, after about a week i change it to something else that has fruits in it, then i went to the doctor he said brinf budgee birds food for them and thats what i did, no matter what he eats its the same, and the female with him she is just ok with whatsoever, no iam having them around 40 days and the same.

The poop may change due to food changes, but the rest of what you describe, is of concern.
At 6 months old, my babies were very active & napping occasionally, although it helps that they get a really good nights sleep without interruptions. If both vets have said it's a virus, clearly the first vet didn't get treatment right to clear it, but you may be able to help your bird, by making sure the night sleep is as good as it can be. Lack of sleep overnight, will make it want to 'catch up' during the day & that also means less energy, as it's tired.
In regards to his eyes. I doubt they have become smaller, so it might just be him not opening them fully as he's too tired. I would like to hope that two different vets would pick anything up like this, had it been an issue.
Where does he sleep in your home ? Do you cover the cage ? Do you have dark curtains/blinds that keep light out ? Do you leave windows open for noise to get in through ?
Any or all of these things could be adding to his sleep & energy issues.
When you state his feet are not strong, how do you judge this ? What's happening to make you say this ?
