My friend had similar-ish problems and it turned out she had dry eyes which was caused by her constantly looking at her phone, bright screens etc. for long intervals.

If you're concerned, try speaking to your GP and repeat to them exactly what you've posted in your OP

You may have a case of greasy eyelids lol my ophthamologist gave me some wipes to clean my eyelids as the grease obstructed my vision slightly. Its more common than you think...

my optometrist didn't prescribe me those wipes by the way... its one of those things that only an Ophthamologist can recognise. They work at hospitals. Maybe ask your optometrist about the wipes though, they actually really help

I have something similar caused by keratoconus so it may be worth looking up the symptoms of that. It may also be something really simple like others have said though. But I know how annoying it can be when you're worried but it seems no one cares. I'm on my 4th optometrist in 2 years and I'm finally getting a referral for possible laser eye surgery as I've finally been taken seriously.

Perhaps go to another another optician practice to get a second opinion. But if you do view electronic screens a lot then try and minimise this in the mean time (should do this myself aswell :/)

This may sound unrelated, but two of my friends only discovered they were dyslexic when they started having similar symptoms as those that you describe. When they went to the opticians their eye health was absolutely dandy, but the Optician told them it might be down to dyslexia, so they got tested for that and it turns out the optician was right in both cases. I am not a healthcare professional, nor do I know anything about the brain and eye health, but it may be worth checking?
