See your eye doctor: Go see your ophthalmologist. If you can't get in, see an optometrist. Feeling a popping sensation in your eye is never a good thing, especially when it gets sore. Occasional painfree redness is ok (often due to broken blood vessel) but swollen & sore eye needs to be evaluated. I assume your vision hasn't changed since you didn't comment. Still it's imperative that you get evaluated today.
