Why is your child crying? Is it burning? Its not going to do much good if you wash it off. If it hurts him maybe check and see if a different antibiotic oint could be used.

Are you talking about eye drops or eye ointment put into the eye for an eye infection? Eye drops absorb pretty quickly and it shouldnt be too much problem. Eye ointment is oil based so tears are not going to affect it a whole lot because it isnt water soluble but it is best if they dont cry afterwards. Are they scared of getting the meds or was this a one time event where the child was upset afterwards about another matter?
