Eyes? Yes, I would call the vet, if it is no better tomorrow AM.
There isn't a whole lot that we civilians can do with eyes. If he will stand for it, you might try dosing the eye with lukewarm to cool water. If he will allow cooler water, it will help with the swelling. A squirt bottle (like a dishsoap style bottle) held upside down above the eye will allow you do run the water over and around his eye without being invasive.
It could be nothing more than an insect bite or an allergy, but it could also be, as you say, a foreign object. You have to make a judgement on whether you call the vet tonight or wait til tomorrow.
