In brief: Common

When the human cornea becomes dry, it's surface can become irregular and swollen.
This may cause the light entering the eye(s) to be distorted and the vision to be blurred. Reconstituting the volume and quality of the tear film will typically resolve the blurring. This can be accomplished with artificial tears, lacrimal plugs, anti-inflammatory drops, and restasis!

In brief: Yes

Yes. Dry eyes cause irregularity of the ocular surface.
This is like looking through a dirty camera lens.
