can l-carotid artery hypoplasia cause temporary r-eye blindness? cta, ct, mri show only l-side abnormalities and a 3mm aneurysm

No: VASCULAR problems causing R blindness would be due to R carotid. The artery to the eye is fed by the same side carotid artery, therefore temporary R eye issues could be related to R carotid or possibly another reason. The reasoning behind your question is that the left side of the brain controls your right side in terms of motor/sensory NEURONS.
