What causes the eyes to roll back in a hypertensive and diabetic person?

Hello, last nite my husband who has type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure, coughed so hard last nite that his eyes rolled back in his head and I had to grab him and see if he was ok. It scared the crap out of me!! I thought he couldn t breathe or something. He also smokes close to a pack a day!
