What causes blurred vision?

My name is Colin. About three years ago I had a problem with my right eye. I was out on a boat during a foggy day and when I come ashore, the vision in my right eye was blurred and it looked like there was a red filter or a blotch distorting my sight. I went to see my GP, then onto an optician who referred me to a specialist. The outcome was they he thought it was a' monocular burn' from the glare off the water (not that it was sunny)!
It disappeared after a few weeks so I recall!
Then on Friday last week I had been driving my car for over three hours and hit a bad stretch of fog (it lasted about 20-30 minutes and took a lot of concentration). And on Saturday, and ever since, I have had the same symptoms again (albeit not so bad as the first time). I can only attribute it to me straining my eyes !
Do you think it is the same problem, and what exactly is a monocular burn please ?
