    It may be. As we know high blood pressure can affect the eyes. The high blood pressure can cause the walls of the blood vessels to weaken and break. That is to say, high blood pressure can cause damages to the blood vessels in the retina, the area at the back of the eye where images focus. So, high blood pressure are likely lead to some eye diseases and vision. So, it may cause blindness finally.

    Yes. High blood pressure is very dangerous if it is uncontrolled. It will make heart work too hard and lead to atherosclerosis. People who have high blood pressure are at a higher risk of heart disease and stroke. If you leave high blood pressure uncontrolled, it may result in some other serious problems, such as kidney damage, congestive heart failure and even blindness. So once you get high blood pressure, you should have it treated as quickly as possible.

Generally speaking, high blood pressure is known as Hypertension, and it is called “the silent killer." According to some experts, when you have high blood pressure, it will just affect your body, leading to some problems. And it can also affect your eyes, finally blindness can be possible.
