In brief: Don't think so

Optic neuritis is typically associated with ms.
Brvo is associated with hypertension, or certain blood clotting disorders, depending on your age.

In brief: Not at all

You are describing a cause of an ischemic optic neuritis, which is very different from an inflammatory optic neuritis.
MS is not a disease of blood vessels or circulation.

In brief: No

Brvo is not typically associated with ms.
You need to be evaluated for systemic hypertension, diabetes, clotting disorders, and other related eye/ systemic disorders to prevent recurrence and involvement of your other eye. You also need to see a retinal specialist to treat the brvo and minimize long term related deficits.
