I'm sorry Curry is experiencing this problem with his eye.
From your description, it does sound like he has either an eye infection like conjunctivitis (pink eye), a corneal scratch or ulcer, a foreign particle in his eye or a different eye problem, that must be diagnosed in person by his vet.
If the antibiotic eye ointment was not expired, it's alright to use.
For the moment, try to keep gently wiping away the discharge and you can also place a warm, rung out plain tea bag on his upper lid, as the tanic acid in the tea helps to draw out infection.
It would be best to have Curry seen by a vet asap, so you can get a definite diagnosis and most appropriate treatment, if another eye medication will be better than the chlorbiotic.
I hope all will be well with Curry's eye!
