Any connection between bell's palsy and vision loss in one eye?

In brief: Corneal abrasion

Bell's palsy can affect the ability to blink on the same side, which may result in a foreign object getting onto the corneal and causing damage.
This will cause pain and distortion in vision. If there is a true loss of vision associated with facial paralysis, this may indicate more extensive problems at the base of the brain, and may well require additional testing.
