No not really any proplem with vision, just a feeling of the eye being sticky but its not. Slight cough but I think this is due to a lot of my friends smoking. passivie smoking.

I am not on any medications.

It appears that you are experiencing the symptoms of dry tear film, with irritation of the cornea and conjunctiva. To resolve this problem, I suggest that you use preservative free tear drop such as Refresh or Genteal drop 4 times daily for 1 week, and then as needed thereafter. If it fails to resolve after 1-2 weeks, then I suggest that you follow-up with your eye doctor for a closer look at your cornea and conjunctiva under the slit-lamp.
