This is likely from infection so you can use a warm damp compress over the eyes to help them open and then to clean away the material around the eye are.
You can use sterile saline or a mild boric acid eyedrop such as contact lens wearers use to clean the eyes out.
You may also want to see your vet for antibiotic eye ointment for them.
Hope this helps you!
