I have a runny nose, dry cough and sore throat & one red and watery eye, and after blowing my nose, the vision got a little blurry. Is this normal?

In brief: Yup

You are experiencing the typical symptoms of an upper respiratory infection.
Pressure up the nasolacrimal duct from vigorous nose blowing could force mucous back up to the conjunctiva, temporarily blurring vision.
