Try applying (gently squirting) some drops along your lashline before you try opening your eyes. Let it seep in a little to moisten your eyes. I suspect your lids are sticking to your eyes. It takes a little practice to do this but keep a bottle of drops next to your bed and soon you will learn to grab them and use them before opening your eyes. I'm the lazy sort and just keep a glass of plain old water on my nightstand, dip my finger in and moisten my lashline. Just enough to ease my eyes open and instill drops.
