New Research Finds Eye Holds Secrets to Stroke & High Blood Pressure

Retina Photography can predict risks for  high blood pressure and stroke- according to new research published in American Heart Association journal Hypertension.
High blood pressure is the world’s single most important risk factor for stroke, however, it is very difficult to predict which people with high blood pressure are most likely to develop a stroke.  This new research study indicates photographing the retina (retinal imaging) may help access which ones are more likely to have a stroke.
It has been said " Eye is the window to your soul".  The blood vessels behind the eye is an easy way to evaluate the status of blood vessels in the brain” and retinal imaging is a non-invasive and inexpensive way to examine the blood vessels of the retina.
Researchers tracked stroke occurrence for 13 years in people with high blood pressure who had not had not had a stroke.Retina photographs were taken, and damage to retina blood vessels(hypertension retinopathy)  were scored. During the follow-up, 146 participants experienced a stroke caused by a blood clot and 15 by bleeding in the brain out of 2907 patients over the 13 years. 
Results indicates 35 % higher in people with mild hypertensive retinopathy and 137 % higher in people with moderate or severe hypertensive retinopathy. In people  on medication and achieving decent blood pressure control, the risk of a blood clot was 96 % higher in those with mild hypertensive retinopathy and 198 % higher in those with moderate or severe hypertensive retinopathy. Data was adjusted for blood cholesterol, sex, race, blood sugar, blood pressure, body mass index etc.
