Poor vision: Dark and blurry vision could be the result of many issues. You do need a complete eye exam with dilation. Also, I would get color plates performed on your eyes. Wish I could give you more specifics, but those symptoms can relate to a long list of items.

Less light.: At night your pupil dilates in an attempt to permit more light to enter your eye and impact your retina. The center of our vision is the macula where our more precise "cone" photoreceptors reside and permits us to see well in light. Our peripheral retina has less precise "rod" receptors that are more exposed at night when our pupil dilates. This is why your vision is "fuzzier" at night.

Can switching contacts make your vision cloudy? Should it happen?

Yes.: If you switch contact lenses from one company to another, even if they are the same power, there can be some difference in vision due to the lens make up. Generally, the difference should be very small. If the difference is great, the powers need to be checked for correctness. If you switch contact lenses between eyes, your vision will definitely be cloudy unless both eyes have the same power.

Will looking at your smartphone or computer or tv in the dark with the lights off ruin your vision? My vision has gotten blurry look at a distance.

No risk, no worry: The idea that reading, looking at TV, or otherwise using your eyes in dim light might harm vision is an old wives' tale. Don't worry about it. At 29, your at an age when visual acuity naturally starts to deline -- look at the millions of people who start to need glasses as they age. It has nothing to do with computer screens, TV, or reading in dim light.
