Not directly: Stress should not directly affect the eyes, but associated problems like hypertension or medication side effects might. If a person does a lot of intensive visual work, there may be a need for glasses that would help. Rarely, stress has been associated with a type of retinal swelling that is usually self limited, but would have to be diagnosed by an ophthalmologist.
