In brief: surely

Best to have your current issues all addressed at same time, but realize that the optic nerve issue is unlikely to be caused by the same pathology resulting in your sciatica.
However, if the eye issue is related to ms, there could be a painful symptom associated. Yes, tell your doctor, and let him/her decide.
