I'm 16yo male and for the past couple years every

I'm 16yo male and for the past couple years every few months I get large blind spots in my eyes making it almost impossible to read anything without words disappearing as I read. I also sometimes completely lose peripheral vision on one side and often comes with a mild headache. When not acting up I have near perfect vision and I do not wear glasses or contacts. I have not had the chance to see an optometrist while its happening because of how infrequently it happens. Is this something to worry about? Is it worth it to go see an optometrist about it even if my vision is perfect at the time?

I am a 40 year old female and have have some mildly high blood pressure readings over the past couple years. I am not over weight and fairly physically active. My reading can vary quite a bit but my systolic is usually 120-135, my diastolic can be around 84 up to 95 at times. I read and have gotten some conflicting recommendations if I need BP meds, it seems that systolic is the number of more concern, is this correct or is that just for older adults? Since I am young I would rather not be on BP meds if I do not have to. Are any supplements recommended besides reducing salt, diet , exercise, all these things I have already done. Thank you for your answer!
