what causes temporary loss of vision?

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.
