Dry eyes vs allergy : Sounds like your outdoor event could've caused you to have allergic reactions to environmental allergens or possible dry irritated eyes related to a dusty environment. Try best not to rub. If itchy, cool compress best, along with OTC anti allergy drops like Zaditor (ketotifen). If sore, warm compress better along with frequent preservative free artificial tears. If no better see eye doc. Good luck!

Not sure: Hard to explain the whitish vision- perhaps its glare from cataract? Cataract from iritis may explain your symptoms. You need to see ophthalmologist.
