six line wrasse with a big eye

i have a six line wrasse and today I noticed that his left eye is bigger than the other, it wasn't until yesterday.
I have this fish for 4 months now, i never saw any aggression with the others fish, i have two clown fish and a yellow tang, he is eating normally. The PH of the water is 8.4, he is swimming around as usual, the only weird thing is the bigger eye( I couldn't take a picture cause he wont stop swimming).
The only thing i put in the water yesterday was the Seachem Reff Zooplankton, but im using it for over a month now.
I'm very worried about him, any ideas of what its and what i can do are welcome.
tks for the attention.

It is called pop eye disease. Usually comes from unhealthy water conditions. Check all water parameters. Adding the plankton could be the cause. It might not have been a issue at the beginning but could be after adding for a month. Again check your water esp. for nitrates and phosphates.
