Blurred Vision On Waking
I have been waking up with headaches and blurred vision for the past 4days now,! first time this sort of thing has happend?
See a doctor:
As soon as possible. This could be a sign of many dangerous conditions affecting the eyes and/or the brain, and it could be a true emergency.
I can't actually think of anything that is NOT dangerous that would cause this pattern. Please don't delay. Good luck to you dear.

Blurred vision: May have many causes. You can start at the tear film, then cornea, lens, the vitreous gel, retina, optic nerve and finally the brain. There are over 2 million parts that compose the eye and the visual system is very complex. A good eye examination will help determine the cause of your blurred vision.
Various: Is the blur recent or gradually oncoming over a long time? Is it one eye or both? Are there any other symptoms: pain, nausea, light flashes, floaters? As you can notice there are many possiblities depending upon the answer to these questions, check with your ophthalmologist to get the diagnosis.
Probably: Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.
BLURRED VISION: Blurred vision can be due to so many causes and I will recommend you see a opthalmologist to find out the cause.
See an eye doctor!: If contacts are causing bluriness, it could be very serious! A dirty or damaged contact lens can cause corneal ulcers. A poorly fitting contact may also do the same. Get it evaluated soon and stop wearing your contact until seen.
Possible: TIA can present as suddenly decreased vision ("curtain falling" or blurred vision). It can be in one eye or in both eyes (in which case it is usually only on one side of vision). Many other diseases can cause blurry vision - migraines, problems with the eye itself.See 1 more doctor answer
Need more info: What activities at night do you notice blurred visioni? Doing any computer work? Driving? This will help pinpoint a better answer for you. Most people don't have blurred vision in the night or day. Often Dry Eye Syndrome is the biggest culprit. However, depending on your age, and past medical, surgical, eye, and social history, plus medications your on can determine why this is happening to you.
Severity: Blurry vision is a symptom of many ocular conditions, including but not limited to: refractive error, dry eyes, conjunctivitis, corneal disease, cataract, inflammation, infection, eyelid disease, medications, neurological & systemic diseases. Dim vision is in itself more worrisome in that neurological (Neuropathies) & circulatory conditions (occlusions) have to be considered. An eye exam helpful
