What causes temporary loss of vision?

It depends.

Loss_of_vision
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.

What is the leading reason for loss of vision?

Depends

Vision_loss
It depends on various factors, such as the age of the patient, and other symptoms. If it's a painful loss of vision, it could mean one thing, or it could be common in old age. It can also commonly occur in a migraine. You should probably get evaluated by your doctor.

Would moving the cornea lead to loss of vision?

Likely

Loss_of_vision
The cornea is the normally clear window of the eye, an important focusing element in your vision system. Exchanging a damaged or diseased cornea with a transplant to restore anatomy and/or vision is common. So, yes to your question if I understand it correctly.
