popped eye treatment

I recently purchased a coral beauty and noticed today its got a popped eye.

What the best treatment? Is this lifethreatening?

Any help is appreciated.

It's not life threatening. If it's only on one side, it's usually due to mechanical injury. If both eyes are affected, it may be a bacterial infection. If it's only one eye, you can ease the swelling with epsom salt. But that's really all you can do. It will need time and good water quality to heal on its own. My flame had this a while ago, took about 3 weeks for it to go back to normal. I don't remember exactly but I think I used one teaspoon of salt per 5 gallons of water. Good luck.
Yeah its only on one side. Think I hurt him transferring him from the bag to the container I do acclimating in. He wasn't acting right during the acclimation.

I appreciate the info.
