Blurry Vision in One Eye

Noticed in the last few months that one of my eyes will become blurry at all distances (i.e., not just close objects or far objects). If I put my finger on the outside corner of my eye and apply slight pressure in the right direction, it will fix the problem. (I have to search around like I'm focusing a telescope or whatnot.) The problem seems to come and go--some days it's barely noticeable, other times it's worse.

Also, I noticed that if I relax and look at at a monitor screen maybe 20 inches away with that eye, it's blurry as I said, but if I hold up a finger halfway or closer to my face and focus on the finger, in the background (if I don't stop focusing on my finger) I can read the monitor text clearly.

So what's going on? I'm guessing from the fact that it can be fixed or focused with these tricks, there's nothing wrong with the retina, and not any blockage of the lens, or any problem in the connection from eye to brain--that it has to instead be some issue with lense shape, focusing muscles, or eyelid itself. (But, most lense problems affecting focus would only affect far or near vision, not both, right?)

I'm in my early 40's, and work all day looking at a monitor.
