In brief: Sleepy Eyes
The "clear sleep" is probably mucus, which is released by the conjunctival goblet cells while you sleep.
It tends to be crusty when you wake up. Just splash some warm water on your face when you wake up and wipe gently with a clean cloth. A few drops of artificial tears, such as systane, will help your eyes feel refreshed at this point.

In brief: Dry eye
Clear discharge can be one of the signs for dry eyes.
My first level of tx is artificial tears and warm compresses.

In brief: Clear drainage
Common cause is blepharitis.
Try warm compresses w hot washcloth massage closed lids for several minutes, then apply baby shampoo to washcloth, clean closed lids then rinse 1-2x day.
