    High blood pressure usually causes red eyes or bloodshot eyes. Double vision has many causes, such as pain, depression and high blood pressure. A tumour or cancer around your eyes can affect your eye nerves which makes double vision. Cataracts are the most common cause of double vision. If you are not sure, you'd better go see a doctor. Double vision is very annoying, and sometimes it may disappear naturally, sometimes it may get worse which means a serous eye condition. Hope you be better soon!

    Yes, high blood pressure can cause double vision. High blood pressure will cause the blood vessel to burst in the end. Your vision will be impaired due to bursted blood vessels or bleeding. As a result, you may suffer from blurred vision or double vision from time to time. Apart from high blood pressure, there are also other causes of double vision including stroke, cerebral aneurysm, dry eye syndrome and conjunctivitis.

    Yes, double vision is one the symptoms of high blood pressure, but as far as i am concerned, it is too early to be sure of that. High blood pressure is a condition in which the pressure of the blood pumping through the arteries is extremely high. It can eventually cause blood vessels in the eye to burst or bleed, and then the double vision will occur. In addition, headache, dizziness and nausea will also appear at the same time. However, there are other reasons that can cause double vision, such as diabetes, dehydration, vertigo and so on. Therefore, if you get double vision, it's better to have a physical examination before take some measures.
