1) you dont have eyes in dreams, so why would you shut them?
2) grab your eyes and pry them open
3) eyelids closing? Screw that, I can see through my eyelids
4) keep them closed and lay down. Imagine yourself where your next dream goal is and make it feel like you are WILDing.
5) practice closing your eyes when your eyes are not bugging out. This is your dream, screw the rules. I can close my eyes if I want.
6) there is something covering my eyes, pretend you have glasses and then take glasses off!
These are things that I have done in dreams. I hope this helps. Any one of them can work in different situations. A lot of dreams it is better to just let it be a bit hazy at first and get involved in a task.

When it gets blurry, i put myself into a lotus position (right in the air, hovering and all), visually focus on something, stay still and breathe slowly. Most of the time, the scenary comes back.
One thing which can be done while blind is the whats in my pocket dream challenge.. put your hand in your pocket and pull out and then feel in front of you what was in there (the concentration on the object may make your dream sight suddenly come in).
Dont forget that you dont need eyes to see in a dream either. You could try to with your thoughts, create a third eye for youself to see out from. Another thing you could do which is interesting.. call out for an eye doctor and think of one of those coming to fix your eyes (which could be a very interesting experience in itself). There are many creative ways to fix this issue.
Of course in my case I was stuck in sleep paralysis, lucid enough to know it was a dream/condition to wake up to escape, but NOT in control, so helpless to do so.
Perhaps what is happening (if you haven't solved it yet) is that when you are lucid you are trying to open your REAL eyes, and since your muscles are paralyzed they don't respond. This would be like trying to move any part of you but couldn't, because you weren't trying to move your dream body, but your real one.
Just a thought. Personally I don't know how I would do one or the other. I'd probably wake up too soon. But it happens so rarely that I don't get the opportunity to practice. Hope to be changing that soon.
My lucid dreams usually start from my bed, with false awakening. So in many of my lucid dreams I have eyes closed first since I have "just woken up". And it's always hard to open them + I'm always afraid I open my eyes for real and wake up.
But I have found couple methods to open my eyes. First one was when I realised it was hard to open my eyes and by forcing them to open I was afraid I'd force myself awake. So I covered my head with a bed cover and opened my eyes in a complete darkness. Then I lift the cover away and ta-da I could see.
Second one happened last time. Woke up again, eyes closed. I couldn't force them open without waking up. So I did a nose reality check (you know- hold your nose and breathe through it) at the same time when I opened my eyes. Managed to stay in the dream while forcing my eyes open.
