I've had hypertension for a few years now, but I'm not sure of this bothersome condition I have is related to it or not. Lately, every so often, I can actually see my blood vessels in my eyes pulsate. Not by looking in a mirror - I actually see the pulsations through my eyes as I'm looking out forward. It doesn't do it very long, or very often, but when it does, its very freaky. I also have had "floaters" in my eyes for years, and they seem to crop up when I sneeze, cough hard, or exert myself some otherway. I'm not as concerned about the floaters, but the pulsating blood vessels is really odd.

Anybody had this condition before, or know what this is?

  • The pulsing blood vessels are probably due to very high blood pressure at the time. I have high bp also and I can tell when mine is high... I start to have blurry vision and a headache that "pulsates"... That would be my guess... I would call my doctor. Your bp being high enough to cause vision problems is NOT a good thing!Good luck!
