Dry eye?: Dry eye may not affect both eyes equally and when your eye gets too dry , the lid may get a little stuck. Since you don't blink much while asleep, tear production is further reduced. Try artificial tear at bedtime and see if this helps. If not, consider seeing your ophthalmologist. Hope it works.
