The puppy's eyes should open anywhere in the 12-17 day range. Do not try and help the puppy to open the eyes as it can cause damage to the eyes. Do not wipe the eyes as if there is bacteria on what you are using, it can cause permanent eye damage or blindness. If after 17 days the eyes are not open, then at that point you will need to have the puppy see the Vet. Please discontinue wiping her face! Joan
