Fear of having my anyone try to hold my eye lids open

I don't feel a fear but I am extremely resistant to having anyone try to lift my eye lids as in an examination. I cringe I make this awful face and loose my breath as if I'm being smothered. My reflex is to pull back. Maybe I'm hyperventilating. It's most exhausting because the doctor has to repeat the examination several times. I can put eye drops in myself if I turn off most lights. Dimness or darkness does make it easier. I'll need cataract surgery exam next month. I'm very worried I'll be a problem for this surgeon.
