In brief: Possible anemia

If you blood count is low, or you have some circulatory problems with pooling of the blood in the lower portion of your body, then when you stand up you will decrease the circulation to your head and not only blur out the vision but could experience dizziness and fainting.
If this is happening consistently, then see your family doctor to sort this out.
