Post conjunctivitis : it is likely you had viral EKC ("pinkeye") which is very contagious but usually harmless. Commonly patients will experience significant dry eye symptoms after EKC, which can include blurring. The dry eye can last for weeks to months and in rare cases can be permanent. Best treatment is aggressive use of artificial tear drops. If this does not help the blurriness you should see an ophthalmologist.
