Eye issue without many symptoms.

Over the last 2-3 weeks I've been experience a pretty severe bloodshot eye with a bulge forming. However, this is the only symptoms I'm facing. It's not itchy, dry, doesn't tear up, no pain or pressure and only experiences slightly blurry vision after 12+ hours of being awake. I can read very fine print with just this eye without problems but sometimes take a short moment to focus as well as the other eye. Everyone else notices the eye immediately and are constantly asking about it but I forget it is even a problem until someone asks.

Other medical info:
-Male in mid-20's.
-6'+ tall, ~200 lbs, ~10-15% bodyfat.
-Pack a day smoker.
-Healthy diet, high protein and healthy fat, low carbohydrate. Little fast food.
-No known allergies.
-Prior exposure to Depleted Uranium and MRSA.
-Diabetes (Type 1 and 2) runs in family but I have not been diagnosed are seen any symptoms.

I'm currently waiting for my TriCare benefits to kick in but that won't start until 01 November. So my questions are:

1. What is this condition?
2. Should I be concerned about this condition?
3. Should I seek urgent treatment prior to my insurance kicking in?
