Friend, I am sorry you are having this problem with your puppy. In response to your question, the swelling you are seeing is protrusion of the gland of the third eyelid. This is commonly known as a "cherry eye." This is not a life-threatening condition nor will it cause vision impairment. But, he should be seen by your family veterinarian for topical medication. But, it is very likely that he will need surgery to replace the gland back in the normal position.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
