Welcome to Ask a Doctor service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Antihypertensive medicine may not damage the eye sight but hypertension it self can cause this, if this is the symptoms of headache you are having then it has to be rule our for cerebral pathology first as it is the hypertension is there, migraine is most common condition causes the headache, no specific reasons are there for high blood pressure.
Hope I have answered your query, let me know for further assistance.

I take 25mg Spironolactone once a day due to pcos and elevated blood pressure. I have changed my diet for the better due to High BP but I have been experiencing pain in rib area the comes and goes. One day the pain is on right side then the next day it may be on the left side, always lower rib area. It feels similar to a side stitch when running. I was walking on treadmill a few times a week but quit when the pain started to see if it would go away. It hasn t gone away and it is more of a nuisance than anything else. Could the pain be caused by the medicine? I have been talking the meds for about 9 days. I have never had this problem before and I believe it is caused by either meds or change in diet because nothing else has changed. I go back to the Dr in a couple weeks but would like an opinion in case I should go see Dr sooner. Thanks

Hi, I was wondering what would cause the blood pressure in my left arm to be elevated 160/110 and the blood pressure in my right arm, taken at the same time, to be 140/88? I do have nerve impingement from a large C6-C7 osteophyte and have chronic pain on the left side of my upper body as a result, but didn t think that would affect my blood pressure? Thanks for your help.
