U don't need anything to apply get some chilled water and soak one wipe (non perfumed) if u can add some saline solution and gently dab on eye clean 3x a day he will heal if not then get some doxycycline eye drops

Try a warm very wet washcloth as a compress held onto the eye for about 5 minutes to soften the crusty drainage. The chloramphenicol ointment should be fine. It will treat many different bacteria in the eye such as E.coli, staph and strep, among others. You can se that here:

Once eyes are open, try to make sure that the eye has not been pieced or ruptured.
