Unless the now absent player had an absolutely critical role you'll probably do ok with just 4. That was (in theory) the size of the group that the initial adventure was aimed at. And there has been substantial power creep since then.
You might have to spend more consumables to compensate for the lack of <whatever the 5th brought to the table> but you'll probably be fine

To my understanding, you don't need to play Eyes of the Ten with the same party in every scenario, just like other PFS scenarios. Your character must play them in order, and they can't play anything else until they finish the series, but your fifth player leaving won't stop the rest of the party from continuing, and that player can jump in with another group starting part two. Likewise, you could also have a new player join the existing party, so long as that character can otherwise legally play that scenario (i.e., they've finished part one and no more).
The only reason that that doesn't happen more often is because it isn't run that often, and the special rules surrounding it just makes it easier to run the whole thing with the same group.
