Hello my name is ***** ***** I’m a vet in the UK.
I recommend you call a vet straight away this morning for a physical examination. There are several different things that could cause Jack’s eye to be closed for example

Conjunctivitis

foreign body in the eye

corneal ulcer

cataracts

luxated lens

Jack requires an urgent assessment with a vet to know which diagnosis he has and therefore what treatment is appropriate. For some of these conditions he might just need eye drops, for others he might need oral medications and for others Jack might need surgery

I hope this helps.
