With one eye, its probably an injury. Popeye usually involves both eyes.
Keep water quality high, soak food in a vitamin supplement such as selcon. It should clear up on its own.
If not, do you have a qt tank?

one of my ocellaris clowns had popeye in one eye, and when i read up on it the book said that popeye is usually an indicator of poor water quality. sure enough, nitrates were pretty high. i did a substantial waterchange and the popeye had cleared up by the next morning.

Did a water check . Also did a partial water change yesterday.

Ammonia 0
Nitrites 0
Nitrates 0
pH 8.2

His other eye is completely fine. He is eating well. I'm leaning more towards the injury theory and am going to wait it out. I'm just hoping it's not too uncomfortable for the little guy.

Thanks for the suggestions.

Really ? How much? He is not in QT. Will this affect the other inhabitants?

Just a quick update and thanks for the advice. For all those who suggested injury - good call. I decided to go the least stressful path for the fish and let nature take its course. I left him in the main tank rather than trying to catch and qt. Kept an eye on water quality... The pop eye resolved itself and the little guy is his old happy go lucky self.

Thanks again.
