This is what I pulled off of our forum under the diseases section:

Symptoms:
Lethargy, bulging eyes associated with loss of vision

Causes:
Severe stress, various pathogens

Treatment:
Broad spectrum antibiotics

Determine your water parameters and perform frequent water changes to improve water quality. Pop-eye is a sign of a number of infections rather than a disease in its own right.

Based on the above info you should perform frequent water changes and get an antibiotic for treatment.
