Our chat system seems to be buggy but we can still communicate this way. I need your answers to these questions to help you.

Are his eyes red, painful, or light-sensitive?

Does the cloudy vision improve momentarily if he blinks or rubs the eyes?

Thanks for those answers. Based on what you've told me, I don't suspect anything serious like significant inflammation or infection. It does sound like he might have some allergies, but either way, the reason his vision is intermittently cloudy is likely because the layer of tears coating his cornea (the tear film) is not healthy--alleries can certainly do this, but just a case of plain old dry eye (more common in the winter) can do this. That's why using those artificial tears has helped. I would recommend doing those everyday at least 3x/day, but you can consider using an OTC allergy drop too (Alaway or Zaditor are good brand names)--treating his allergies will also help stabilize the tear film and as a result, help to stabilize his vision? Does that make sense?
