How does my blood pressure relate to my eyes?

Many diseases or symptoms that affect your eyesight are related to your circulatory system and your blood flow.  For example, if you are a smoker or have Diabetes, this may cause your blood pressure to rise which may also affect your vision.  In the most severe cases, it may also cause blindness.  Please discuss any symptoms with Dr. Barit; he may also elect to perform a blood pressure test if necessary.
