I know the grain mill carries it (terramyacin). I don't know exactly where you are, but if you're near me, go to Albrights Mill on Monday. I also have a tube if you need to use some tomorrow...

Also wanted to say that if he doesn't have any other symptoms, he most like got scratched in the eye, or got some sort of debris in it, causing the irritation. Keep it clean and treat as stated above.

Most likely cause is a mycoplasma infection (respiratory) The sinus cavities run right under the eyes, so it appears to be an eye problem when in all actuality is respiratory.
Tylan or tetracycline based meds are best and needed quickly. It is highly contagious so treat all you birds for it.
You can go to Jeffer's .com and find a wide array of antibiotics for this. Look for ones that treat Chronic Respiratory Disease, or mycoplasma infections.

To further verify this is it, does he, scratch at his head, shake his head, listen to his breathing, does it sound congested? All those are other signs of it.
Hope he gets better for you, you're right, more means more problems, but I couldn't live without them!
