Could this also be "I will be able to see"? Or does -laH only express a general ability?

Yes, that is a possible translation. Just like the verb with a suffix, it may be referring to the past, present, or future. The -laH just makes about ability to do the thing in the past, present, or future. It's also acceptable, depending on context, to translate it as, "I was able to see."
