Check the cleanliness of the lens first. If it looks reasonable, then try turning the small outer circle around the lens to focus the camera.
If that doesn't work, then the lens may have become loose from the focus function, it'll either need re-attaching somehow or maybe even complete replacement.

It depends on what program you are using it in, the quality of the webcam and the computer resources
When I open my webcam from the desktop - I can hold a newspaper in front of it and read the print
Make sure the lens is clean and check to see if you have a focus ring around the lens you can rotate to sharpen the image ( like a telescope )
