Revisit the Opth: May need to lubricate the eyes with drops. Or consider a visit to the person who got you into the contacts. May need a different type. Could also visit your GP for labs. Diabetes may cause blurred vision.
Need to see someone to get this checked out. Can't-do vision testing or acuity evaluation on telemedicine. See a local provider.

Can your contact lens prescription tell you what kind of vision you have (ie. 20/20)?

No: Your prescription tells you if you are myopic, hyperopic, and/or if you have astigmatism. It doesn't tell you how far down the chart you can read, but with the correct prescription you should see 20/20 assuming no ocular pathology to limit your vision potential.

My vision is cloudy (possibly from my contact lens), what should I do?

Clean contact: Take your contact out and clean it. Re-insert it. If still cloudy, replace it. If this is cloudy, call your ophthalmologist.
