    Absolutely yes.It's quite common to spot high blood pressure signs in the eyes of younger people who haven't started having regular checks for the condition.Optometrists will look out for squiggly blood vessels in the retina-triggered by the force of the blood passing through-which can lead to haemorrhaging behind the eye.
