In brief: Morning vision

It is common for our eyes to take a while to focus in the morning.
First, we may have a build-up of mucous that has to be cleared by blinking; then you have to focus the lens of your eye, which has been resting all night; you might also be affected by allergies in your eyes overnight. Finally, your head is often fuzzy on awakening, so you don't interpret what you see as well till you really wake u.
