Hypertensive Retinopathy is a medical condition in which the retina and retinal circulation is affected due to hypertension.

Hypertensive Retinopathy is classified into 4 grades, Grade 1 being mild and Grade 4 being severe, often resulting in death. Symptoms are:
• Blurred vision
• Focal arteriolar narrowing
• Formation of haemorrhages
