Treating a Cat's Eye Discharge

My male Main Coon cat, who is 7, has discharge in his eye. It has no color. The eye is not red, swollen, or puffy. This eye makes him look like he is squinting. It seems like the eye is itchy to my cat. Otherwise, he has no other symptoms. I have gently wiped it with a cotton ball that I wet it with saline. His eye has only been like this for a couple of days. When do I need to take him to the vet? I don't want to neglect his care, as he is my baby, but the vet is very expensive. Any advice would be appreciated.

My cat had the same thing with no color, it looks like he's crying, I took him to the vet and they told me 2 things:
1. it could be that he scratched his eye on something and it will heal on it's own.
2. His tear duct might be clogged and so the extra water goes out the eye. The only way to fix this is the vet said they have to be put under so they can go in and unclog the duct I hope this helps good luck.
