You need an exam: There are too many possibilities as to why your vision is not good at distance. In order to find out, you need a comprehensive eye exam with dilation of the pupils. This should be coupled with a measurement of your refractive error, or eyeglass prescription both subjectively and objectively. With this type of exam, you are likely to find the problem.
