In brief: Yes, today.

It sounds like he has some sort of infection, most likely involving at least the skin and perhaps deeper. He needs to been seen by a doctor today, not tomorrow.
Infections around the eye can be very serious, and early treatment is essential to prevent complications.

In brief: Red eye

Agreed. He may have a viral ( herpetic) infection of the eye coupled with orbital cellulitis.
Both conditions are alarm symptoms and your husband should be seen immediately.
