In brief: No

However some research is looking at neurodegenerative disorders such as pathological similarities in glaucoma and alzheimer's.

In brief: Not usually

very few eye conditions are associated with memory loss (one of them is ("devic's disease") but no eye conditions are known to actually cause memory problems.

In brief: Not that we know of

Eye problems generally do not lead to memory problems.
However, people with dementia who develop cataracts or who need glasses but do not have any can often have worse symptoms of dementia that clear once their vision has been improved.
