In brief: Check thyroid funct
Some people can just have "prominent-appearing" eyes.
If the protruding eyes are new, by far the most common cause is abnormal thyroid status. This can be the case even if the blood tests for thyroid hormone seem normal at this time. There are other rare causes, and patient should be examined by an ophthalmologist or oculoplastic/orbital specialist.
