Default One eye getting blurry off and on

Recently, I've noticed that my right eye seems to get blurry off and on throughout the day. The effect is like a fine film blurring my vision. Usually rubbing my eye in one direction, or blinking multiple times clears the problem up, however it's getting extremely annoying. Does anyone know what's going on?

- Usage notes: I very rarely sleep with my contacts in. They are soft lens disposables. USUALLY when I take my contacts out at night, I just drop them in the case with some multi-purpose saline. I rub them a bit in the morning with some fresh saline, but thats the extent. (I rinse the case out just about every night with water)

Thanks

I really don't know that much about fitting contacts, but based on what I've read here, it sounds like you might have some dryness. Have you tried a moisturizing eye drop like Blink?

Maybe they're getting some protein deposits, and maybe you'd be better off soaking them overnight in a cleaning solution instead of plain saline?

I found this on the website for Grand Vision Optometry. It said "Dry eye can cause . . . intermittent blurry vision, difficulty wearing contact lenses, and even watering of the eyes."
That and the fact that rubbing your eye and blinking seem to help with the blur makes it look a lot like you've got some issues with tear production.
