In brief: Dry eye

Your description sounds like dry eye.
Initial treatment is frequent artificial tears during the day, ountment at night, warm compresses a few times a day, and omega-3 fatty acid supplements. If no improvement, you should see an eye doctor for further evaluation.

In brief: Yes

Yes prolonged eye contact without blinking will cause the eye to dry out leading to distortion in vision.
