Our office betta is having the same problem! We have had him for two years and within the last few days he has stopped being able to eat. In his case, he seems to be overshooting the foot pellet slightly and even when he is o target he never can grasp it. Sometimes the pellet will land on his head or drift to the bottom and he will eventually give up. He has not gotten one at all in two days! Although who knows for sure, his vision appears okay because he comes up to the surface when food is placed on it and his eyes aren't cloudy or anything. I see no problems with him physically except perhaps an indentation behind his top lip, like a shallow trough. Not sure it that has always been there or not but the other two younger fish (in their own bowls) don't have it.
Have you had any luck with your betta, yet?
