Can nystagmus cause wavy lines in vision?

Probably not

Head-eye
Nystagmus from childhood brain or eye problems, sometimes with dramatic motion, does not cause a perception of what is viewed to be moving. Acquired nystagmus from injury or toxicity can cause a perception of environmental motion. The motion is linear in most cases and will not be perceived as wavy. Wavy lines are most commonly due to macular problems which your ophthalmologist can assess.

Can high blood pressure cause wavy vision?

Not likely

Cardiac
Unless the pressure is staggeringly high, there is usually no effect on the vision. Wavy vision should be investigated by your ophthalmologist especially if it is of recent onset. Blood pressure does need control for other reasons (heart, brain) but not for alterations in eye vision.

Does hydrocephalus cause sqigly lines in your vision?

Can affect vision

Vision
The squiggly lines are more in the category of a migraine response, but hydrocephalus can reduce visual acuity, and on occasion, fluctuations of increased intracranial pressure may result in periodic visual obscurational events.

What could cause this and should I visit the hospital? A few hours ago I had a brief flash of black lines shoot across my vision, my eye began to twitch and it looked like blood filled up in the corner of the eye. The red has now vanished from my eye and

It could be a retinal detachment. You should see a retinal specialist or perhaps begin with a general ophthalmologist who can conduct a dilated retinal examination and determine the cause.
