yup.. looks like pop eye to me. I've never dealt with it before so I don't know how to treat but you can search through the forum for old threads.

The popeye needs medication if you have been doing the water changes correctly, there is something (can't remember exactly what) back behind the eye and it bascially pushes it out, eventually he will lose the eye. Use the medication on him very strictly, and he should be fine.

well now im screwed! and so is my fish

i can't use medications for personal reasons. All I can do is move him to an empty 6g and treat with aquariam salt and very clean water.
