10 Symptoms of High Blood Pressure

Symptom #2: Blurred Vision

When high blood pressure goes on undetected and untreated, it can lead to blurred vision. This happens because the high pressure can cause tiny capillaries in the eyes to harden or rupture. The same can happen to the blood vessels supplying blood to the retina. This interferes with the supply of blood to these parts of the eye.

Consequently, the eye and specifically the optic nerve and the retina do not receive adequate blood to provide them with the oxygen and nutrients necessary for them to work properly. If this goes on over an extended period of time without treatment, it can cause vision loss.
