Try to wash it out with salt water and keep it clean but you really do need to take it to a vet. Try your local animal shelter, they will give it free treatment. Act quick though as eye injuries can lead to blindness.

NO HE NEEDS A VET, YOU SHOULDNT HAVE ANIMALS IF YOU CANT AFFORD A VET. THE CAT IS PROBABLY IN PAIN AND CAN ACUTALLY GET INFECTED OR LOSE THEIR FULL EYESIGHT IF THE RETINA IS DAMAGED. YOUR CAT IS SUFFERING RIGHT NOW AND YOU ARE WASTING TIME ON HERE. IF YOU CARE ABOUT IT TAKE IT TO THE VET NOW. DO NOT TOUCH IT OR PUT ANYTHING ON IT, IF IT IS THE EYEBALL, YOU WILL INFECT IT MORE. STOP LETTING IT SUFFER IN PAIN, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU.

Sorry to hear that your cat got attacked, you didn't say when or how, but that doesn't really matter all that much does it....

I know myself that it is expensive to go to the vet, and get your pet seen too. I have been in that position a number of times, and I am a single not working mother...

I have found if you contact your local RSPCA (this is what they call it in Australia, not sure where you are but your local animal shelter), ring them and tell them exactly what position you and your cat are in and hopefully they will be able to help you out, as they have a number of times for me. Right down to picking up the cat and myself and dropping me off home, even paying for medication...

But if you find that this doesn't work out for you, then you should then go to the nearest vet, the on closest to your home, with your cat, explain your position, to the vet, not the secretary and let them know that you may not have the money at the moment, but if they allow it could you pay them off, and if you really are worried about your cat you wouldn't mind paying it off in installments.. I once was put in this position, and couldn't afford to even pay them off, so offered to work off my debt, and that worked out fine... You may also ask if you could do the same...

Please don't try and attend to your cat yourself, as animals are allot different than humans and the eye is a touchy subject, and you could then turn the cat blind, so please think twice before doing it yourself, or from what someone else has done, and tried before, as this may not be the same problem that your cat may have....

All the best with your cat and I hope that someone out there will be willing to help you and your cat out....

If you can't afford a vet why do you let your cat roam loose outdoors? I highly doubt this happened in your home - unless you've got a vicious dog or something else that attacked it.

There's no home remedies for eye injuries. If you truly can't afford a vet then IMMEDIATELY surrender this cat to a no-kill shelter http://fluffynet.com/no-kill-shelters/ And don't get pets in the future that you can't afford to care for.
