Different reasons: Blurry vision is a fairly common complaints and may have several causes, some of them may not necessarily be eye related such as pre-syncope (near fainting). Keeping eyes closed for a while (like after a night sleep) may cause "normal" blurriness or changing gaze from a distant object to a near one rapidly, may cause blurry vision. I would recommend obtaining professional advice, though.

Many possibilities: Blurred vision can be cause from many different reasons. A need for glasses is probably the most common cause for blurred vision but it can also be caused by dry eye, cataracts, retinal damage, or many other causes. If your vision is blurry see your ophthalmologist for further evaluation.

More specific: How long does it stay blurry? Any medications? Very common reasons are dry eyes and nearsighted/farsighted/astigmatism errors. A good eye exam by an ophthalmologist can provide a more specific solution.
