You seem to have dry eyes which typically cause blurred vision in the morning and clears later. Reflex watering is the initial symptom of dry eyes. Dry eyes can occur very commonly either due to excessive evapouration of tears or due to reduced production of tears.

It is better to start lubricating eye drops like preservative free Refresh tears eye drops ,1 drop 4 times a day (OTC).

For comfortable reading it is better to use reading glasses. You will end up straining your eyes trying to read without glasses and in turn worsen the dry eyes.

Thanks and best wishes
