Start out with 2 tsp/gal epsom salt full time for a few days to see if it will help your betta first.

The epsom salt will help with the swelling, but you need to make sure his water remains at a good quality since pop eye is most often caused by poor water quality.

He may have scratched his eyes on a decoration then. Anything slightly rough or plastic plants? silk plants might be able to cause this too.
