Dry Eye can definitely cause blurriness. I can't say thats what causing your issue since I'm not an MD. However, dry eye did cause blurriness for me. It was not as bad as your scenario but I remember on one occasion my right eye had bad dryness and it went from 20/20 to about 20/40 in about 2 hrs. Luckily 2 days later it was fine.

and BTW... Do NOT despair. Worry and Stress slow healing. I know that's cliche to say but its true.

Do I regret my Lasik (7 weeks ago)? Haven't made up my mind yet. I have 20/20 (R) and 20/25 (L) so far. However, I'm having really bad dry eye and using lubricating drops about every 30-45mins. Also, I have ghosting/astigmatism in low light. And halos but the halos are much better than week 1. I started panicking about week 3 (dry eye / ghosting) but I've finally come to terms that this maybe a slow healing process.

One thing I do wish I could change is when I had my surgery. Wintertime is the absolute worse time to have Lasik in my opinion since is so cold and low humidity in most of the US and that will dry you out in a heartbeat. If you are using a lot of drops make sure you use the preservative free kind. My personal preference for drop is Refresh Endura (available in Canada), Refresh Dry Eye Therapy, and Refresh Optive.
