    It is true that high blood pressure can cause bad vision if left untreated. High blood pressure can damage the blood vessels that provide blood to the retina that is at the back the eye and used to focus on images. The eye disease related with high blood pressure is called hypertensive retinopathy and should be taken seriously. This eye disease will lead to blurred vision, eye bleeding and total loss of vision. You can take measures to prevent the high blood pressure from affecting your eyes. You should keep a healthy lifestyle by taking more exercises and stopping drinking and smoking. A healthy diet should be considered. High amount of salt and sodium should be avoided in the diet. It is also necessary to visit your doctor on regular basis.
