Just in case you misunderstand Jake when he says it is a method of 'hydrating' their eyes, eye-bulging is the way they usually clean their eyes.
Eye-bulging most often happens when they are being sprayed with water, and they sometimes rub their eyes on a wet branch or leaf to finish the job.

As Jake said, it's only a problem if the cham continues to do it throughout the day, or starts to keep his eye closed, or have trouble closing his eye. In that case there may be something irritating his eye.
