My bearded dragons eye seems like it’s popped out. He can still see through it and he seems fine otherwise. He closes the one eye frequently.

Look up bearded dragon eye bulging and see if that's it. Sometimes when their heads are about to shed, they will puff their eyeball out to stretch the skin. But it stays like this only for a few seconds before going back to normal. If this is not what's happening then a picture is necessary for us to help you like karrie said.

It looks like the lens is bulging a bit. I've seen this before, but am not certain of the cause. How long has it been this way? Is the bulge increasing in size? If it has been this way for a long time, it may be genetic. If it is a new development or if he is closing it a lot like it is bothering him, it may be due to a tear duct issue, irritation from something caught in it, or possibly an infection in or around the eye.

It’s been like that for a while it doesn’t seem to bother him other than he’ll close it for a second sometimes

If it doesn't appear to bother him, then it may be OK. Just keep note of it and watch for any changes in it's appearance or his behavior.
