I don't mean to lecture or anything, but it's VERY unlikely based on the description, s/s of dehydration and its progression, and etiology behind dehydration.
I'm thinking more along the lines of a transient perfusion problem, not prolonged dehydration.

By analogy, if the heart can undergo reversible angina, (momentary reduction in blood perfusion causing chest pain), perhaps the eye can too (momentar reduction in blood perfusion leading to vision blur?). I don't know. I'm not optho.
