Eyeball popping out

So last night i noticed that my female Veiled Cham was rubbin her left eye agaisnt a limb of her ficus. Her eye seemed to have been bulging out but inside the eyelids. I was freaked out and immediately pulled her from the cage to investigate only to find it was back to normal. Was she just cleaning herself or is this a more serious matter?

Sounds like she is just cleaning it out. Your explanation sounds normal to me.

both mine and my more experienced friend's chameleons do this all the time. it looks like one eye is bulging out and much bigger, but its normal i believe

Not sure why they do this, if its indicating preparing to shed or just cleaning eye or what, but I catch mine doing it every once in a while.
