1. Loss of Vision
One of the dangers of high blood pressure is vision loss, which can be blurred or complete loss of sight. Several reasons are responsible for this symptom, including hypertensive retinopathy. People experience hypertensive retinopathy when they leave their high blood condition unchecked, causing damages to the retina, which leads to eye bleeding, blurred vision, and complete blindness.
Another cause is choroidopathy. This condition is a result of fluid buildup under the retina, leading to distorted vision, and in some cases, impaired vision. Contact your doctor immediately if you’re experiencing this symptom, even if it’s in one eye.
