Most lizards will bulge their eyes. It is done by constricting the jugularis and usually done for two reasons:
1) as a way to thermoregulate; it allows warm blood from the head to be exchanged with cooler blood from the body. Ever notice how a lot of lizards will just pop their heads out of their holes for sun? Or in the case of lizards in captivity they will usually bask with their heads under the light.
2) as a way to loosen peeling skin from around the eyes.
