Not specific terms: There are several near and far points. There is the near point of convergence- how close to the eye an object can be seen and not be double. Then there is a near point of accomodation- how close to the eye an object can be seen clearly. Far point refers to the furthest an eye can see clearly ( in a nearsighted eye- not very far).

Yes: Although the majority of patients who have cataracts have them in both eyes, there are plenty of people who have a unilateral (in one eye only) cataract. The reason is not always apparent but trauma may play a role.

Dry eye: The symptom of "sand" in the eye or an eye lash is very often a result of a dry eye condition. It may help to use the over the counter artificial tears such as Systane or Refresh 4 times a day. If it doesn't help after a few days , see an ophthalmologist because there are other things that could cause those symptoms.
