Ooo I know this from first hand experience! Our sweet Monroe, when he was a tiny baby, had a clogged tear duct.. it wasn't that big of a deal, but it did make for a gooey eye when he woke each morning for a week or so. The doctor told us what to do, but aside from that, we were already doing it :)

We would take a luke warm wet wash cloth and gently wipe out the corner.. you can also use a luke warm wet cotton ball as well. You want to make sure you get it all out and keep it clean, as well as dry!

As for Monroe.. we then were told to massage around his clogged tear duct and bingo bango.. it opened up and no more goo!
