    Yes, people with high blood pressure are more at risk of causing broken blood vessels eyes. Broken blood vessels eyes is known as subconjunctival hemorrhage, which occurs when the blood vessel underneath the surface of the eye break. And the blood becomes visible when the conjunctiva could not absorb blood quickly enough. However, it is not easy to notice because of no pain. The certain cause of subconjunctival hemorrhange is unknown, even some physical actions could cause it as well, such as sneezing, heavy lifting, coughing. The high blood pressure accelerates the blood flow through the eyes, which means the walls of the arteries are receiving too much pressure repeatedly. As we all known, the thinnest blood vessel is around eyes, thus it is risky to break these thin blood vessels with high blood pressure.
