    Sounds like dry eye cause by meiobem glands in the lid. I have this issue right now. Its a very common caus of dry eye. It often is not diagnosed as often doctors dont check these glands on the rims of both your upper and lower lids. These glands supply the oil layer of your tear film. There are 3 layers to the tear film. If any of these layers are off it can disrupt clarity of vision. Google mgd/dry eye. I was and do get episodes of blurred vision,hazy vision and cloudy vision. When you say after blinking it clears points to this being your problem. Please have them check you for dry eye and not just test your tear break up time but to examine your lids for clogged glands. Took me 2 eye docs to find i had this issue. Xx
