    A picture would be very helpful...chickens have 3 eyelids so that could be the issue. The two that go up and down like ours do and the extra one goes across like a windshield wiper.

    The lump is most likely his crop, kinda like a storage stomach. Is it hard or soft? If it's hard, he may be blocked, so you might want to take away his feed overnight and see if the bulge goes down.
    His eye, well, take some warm water on a cloth and hold it on his eye. It may be stuck.
