If this were true then all doctors would get cataracts early.

In brief: Doubt it!

The bluriness you are seeing are likely due to fatigue and dry eyes!

In brief: No

More likely this will lead to eye fatigue and eye dryness which can affect vision, and eye drops can help temporarily.
Good sleep is essential to being healthy.
