Retina, located in the back of the eye, is the tissue layer that helps in transforming light into nerve signals that are sent to the brain for interpretation. During high blood pressure, the retina’s blood vessel walls may thicken, and as a result, causing the blood vessels to become narrow, which in turn, restricts the blood from reaching the retina. If high blood pressure continues for a long time, it may cause damage to the retina’s blood vessels. This condition is called Hypertensive Retinopathy. Some of the symptoms of Hypertensive Retinopathy include reduced vision, headache, double vision, eye swelling or bursting of a blood vessel.
