No: Though a brain aneurysm could cause problems with vision, it is in no way a substitute for true examination of the brain blood vessels. A better choice to screen for brain aneurysm would be an mr angiogram, ct angiogram or conventional angiogram.

No: Retinal exam and vision test will not diagnose or rule out aneurysms.

Only MRA or cerebral angiograms can rule out (or in) aneurysms.
