Default "White Eye" Removal?

Red eye removal is a common tool in digital photo editing applications, but having recently shot a lot of photos in Mexico of a stage performance, and I saw a lot of something I'd never seen before: "white eye". When shooting photos of animals, I'll sometimes see "green eye", but I think this white eye effect is related to constantly shifting stage lights that they were using. Here's an example of what I'm talking about:

The right eye was fixed with red eye reduction in ACDSEE 8, but the white one was not. That didn't surprise me, mind you, because I know that the technology looks for red pixels, not white ones. Short of loading it into Photoshop Elements and painting over the white with black pixels, does anyone know of any programs that can deal with this problem? In a similar vein when I take photos of my dog in low light, she tends to get "green eye", and I have a similar problem. Given the number of pet photos that people take, you'd think someone would have come up with a solution for this by now.
