Sadly it is just for sale. No quests need this item to progress through them, and the only use this item serves is to hold value so it can be sold.

Closing Remarks

It is a boss drop, and the boss must be beaten to progress through the game’s main quest line. So if you are already going to beat him anyway, why not pick the Mendez False Eye boss drop item up and sell it to the nearest Merchant to earn you some Pesetas? You can use this money to upgrade your arsenal of weapons further or buy necessary items for your journey.
