Thanks for writing to us.

It seems that you are having infection in your eyes. Do you have discharge too from the eyes? Discharge from the eyes during night result in difficulty in opening your eyes in the morning as the eyes become sticky.

Wash your eyes with clean water three to four times a day. You can put Ciprofloxacin Eye drops in your eyes, one drop four to five times a day. Also take antihistamine tablet like cetrizine 10 mg once a day for cold.

You will get relief from your symptoms in a day or two. If the problem persists, contact your health provider.

I hope this is helpful to you.
If you have any further query, I will be happy to help.
