I'm no chicken expert but I've treated just about every other type of animal, you have already done exactly what I would do. Shy of taking it to the vet, your choice. But I would wait it out until the swelling goes down and see what you can see. Unless it starts to go down hill in any way. I'm not sure about chickens but I've met so many one eyed animals and a few blind ones who have adjusted to it just fine if worse comes to worse. 😕

I would leave him be, either he has an eye or he doesn't. When the swelling goes down you will know. Was he fighting? Sometimes they get fowl pox which will cause eyes to swell shut. I wouldn't be washing or putting stuff in his eye, just let nature heal it.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.
