Ask an Eye Doctor and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello, this is Dr. Salama,
Does it feel like a curtain came down on your left eye?
How high is your BP right now?
That is extremely high. Is it normally that high?
With your blood pressure that high and some indication of end-organ damage (visual symptoms) this would be considered a hypertensive emergency which needs to be evaluated and controlled in the ER.
Let me know if you have any other questions. If not, please don't forget to leave a positive rating as that's the only way I get credit for answering your question. Thank you.
Yes, I would. For 2 reasons, to control your BP and to make sure that your heart is not also being affected by the elevated BP just as your eyes are.
How are you feeling today?
Ok, I'm glad you went. Best of luck.
