Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Malignant hypertension is hypertension with papilloedema (swelling of optic nerve head).
It needs prompt and proper control of blood pressure - needs long term follow up.

Regarding the vision, you must see your eye doctor again - it may be he consequence of papilloedema or vitreous opacities.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
