Kittens eyes opening ???

My cats kittens are now 10 days old, at what age should thier eyes start to open.
I thought it was between 2-3 weeks and that they gradually open over a few days.
The reason i ask is that the female kitten of the litter had opened her first eye on the morning a day eight, but this didn't happen gradual it was a case of closed to fully open straight away, the other eye was still closed then that evening pop opens the other eye fully. Is this normal?

One of the boys has a tiny gap today in one eye and the other boy has his eyes still closed.

Sounds normal to me. Kittens eyes usually open between 8-10 days of age. All the kittens and puppies I have reared have simply just opened their eyes over the course of a day.
