I have recently started experiencing very dry eyes during the day and waking up in the morning with a film on my eyes that causes blurred vision. After I blink a few times, the film seems to go away and my vision clears up within five minutes.
I do wear bifocals. I work on a computer, sometimes up to 10-12 hours a day.
I have not changed my meds recently. Please advice on a course of action

From what you have described it seems like you have tear film dysfunction.

Hot fomentation of the lids before going to sleep helps.Start applying preservative free artificial tears(Refresh tears).Hope this helps but if symptoms persist,do consult your ophthalmologist.
