          Use the clone tool .

          With the clone tool active, press ALT+left click an open eye (source), then clone over the closed eye. It's best to open a blank layer above the layer with the closed eye to deposit the cloned pixels.

          Use the move tool if the position is not quite right, and you can resize, if necessary, with corner handles of the bounding box.

          Repeat with the other eye.

            3. choose clone stamp tool
            4. hold alt key and click on the area near eye in the image with opened eye

                Here's another method. In this example I want to replace the closed eye.

                - Roughly select the open eye using the Elliptical Marquee tool:



                - Copy/paste the selection to a new layer.

                - Flip the new layer horizontally and use the Move tool to position it over the closed eye. Use arrow keys to fine-tune the position.

                - Use the Eraser with soft brush to remove excess from the selection.


                eye2.jpgy the open eye


                In your case you would just select/copy the open eye and paste into the other picture.
