    what's the difference?

    Hi teachers,

    what's the difference between these phrases?
    open one's eyes.
    open one's eyelids.


    And thank you

    open one's eyelids is the simple act of opening that part of the eye.

    open one's eyes can mean the same thing as the above if the context is correct, but it can also mean to become more aware of what is happening around you

    Open your eyes!!! Can't you see this man is no good for you!
