Detailed Answer:
Hi, Thanks for using Healthcaremagic.

I went through your query and understood your concerns.

Feeling beats in nerves, as what you have mentioned, is normal. do seen in many of us. it's arterial beat.

Regarding your eye problems, needs to be concerned. If its recent indent better to get examination of eye done including fundoscopy. Get intraocular pressure test done. So better to consult doctor and get it evaluated. Other possibility wound be migraine provided eye examination findings are normal.

Hope I answered your query. Feel free to ask further related query.

Wish you a good health.
