What is hypertensive retinopathy?

Hypertensive retinopathy is damage to the retina from high blood pressure. The high blood pressure changes the microvasculature of the layer of tissue at the back part of the eye. Severe damage to the eye is likely if the person has been living with high blood pressure for a long period of time.
