    Well, yes, it is possible to have some eye problems. And generally speaking, stroke can lead to black eyes. For example, when blood and other fluids collect in the space around the eye, a black eye can occur. And then, in some serious cases, swelling eyes will be caused too. Dark discoloration around your eyes may occur. Of course, you should be careful about it, for it may lead to red eye. At this moment, you can try using ice to reduce the swelling caused by a black eye. And some eye drops can be effective too.

    Yes, it is possible to cause eye problems because of stroke. As the stroke does damage to the brain, serious stroke can influence the visual pathways of the eyes and give rise to the blurry vision, double vision, moving images, sensitivity to light and loss of part of vision or visual field loss. In addition, it can bring the difficulty in judging depth and movement.

    Yes, it is possible for you to cause the eye problems because of stroke because the throat and eye nerves are interlinked. Your eyes may get red eyes. You'd better use the eye drops to release the symptom. You could also use the warm compress to make the eyes feel comfortable. You should also use the medical care to treat your stroke.
