This is an extreme form of red-eye, and I don't think there's much you can do, save for reconstructing the eye yourself.

What has happened here is that the inner eye has reflected so much of the light that the green and blue channels have are very close to clipping. Since most red-eye techniques I know of only remove information from the red channel, they won't be up to the task of removing the reflection, since it's still there in the green and blue channels.

My advice for avoiding reflections like these is to use an external flash, and bounce the light from it if necessary. If you often run into situations where you still get redeye with an external flash, but cannot use bounce flash techniques (open air, high ceilings or strongly coloured ceilings), then you might want to consider buying a flash bracket designed to increase the distance of the flash from the lens..
