Temporarily impaired vision? Could it be from aura?

In brief: Yes, certainly

If the impairment is fairly stereotyped from event to event, it may well represent a migraine aura, even if a full headache does not follow ("acephalgic migraine").
While most people report vague dark or light spots or a visual flicker as part of their aura, some have very complex visual disturbances, such as vibrant zigzags referred to as "fortification patterns.".
