Low blood pressure?: If the symptoms are reliably triggered by changes in position (e.g. standing from a seated or lying position), they may represent orthostatic hypotension, a drop in blood pressure brought on by movement. Your PCP can confirm this and help narrow down causes, such as dehydration, heart trouble, or neuropathy.

It depends. : The word "temporary" could mean seconds or days. Brief loss of vision could be related to common problems like low blood pressure or migraines. Longer periods of vision loss are often due to more serious problems. In any case, an ophthalmologist and/or neurologist should be involved.
