No, do not use Ciplox. I don't know what is available where you are but if you can get an eye wash solution that is purified water like the one in this link Eye Irrigating Solution – Daily or emergency eye cleansing – Advanced Eye Relief Eye Wash : Bausch + Lomb you can try one drop in the eye, however this is not a medication and will not treat an infection if that is what is causing the problem but may help to flush the eye. Do not use any product that is for dry eyes or to remove redness.

The purpose of this forum is to promote the BEST PRACTICES in the care of budgies for their optimal Health and Well-Being

Cody has given you excellent advice.
Even if you rinse the eye with a simple sterile saline solution, that is not going to cure the infection.
Your budgie needs to be seen by an Avian Veterinarian for a professional diagnosis and treatment plan.

Avian Vets have special training to determine the cause of symptoms resulting from illness or trauma.
This is important as "regular" vets will often overlook symptoms that are quickly obvious to an Avian Vet.
When you rely on anyone who has not had training in Avian diagnosis and care, you may be delaying effective treatment.
This can prolong suffering that may be avoidable.
The bird will often require a more intense, prolonged treatment with a poorer chance of full recovery than it would have if you seek prompt professional diagnosis and treatment at the first sign of illness.
If there are no Avian Vets near you, please find an Exotic Pet Veterinarian with experience in dealing with small birds.
