Eye Hurt when i woke up, blurry - Ideas?

I woke up this morning and my left eye felt like i had an eyelash in it, which i didnt. And my vision was sort of blurry in it - almost like its off focus. Its been almost an hour and its the same - eye hurts when i blink and my vision is off. Could this just be from extremely dry eye? Im on antibiotics and stuff, dont know if that would have any effect on it.

Dry eyes can be painful and many meds can dry the eyes.
BUT you don't know if that is the problem or not.
Don't gamble where your vision is concerned.
You need to call your DR and ask about it.

I wake up with that feeling quite often and it's very annoying.
I was told I have dry eyes, and believe I have RCE (recurrent corneal erosions), which bother you when you first wake up.
It feels like your eye lid is stuck to your eye and there is sharp pain when you try to open your eye, also blurriness of vision.
I use Refresh eye drops and try to put them in soon as you wake up.
I would see a doctor though just to rule out anything more serious.
