In brief: Retina
Depending on how high the blood pressure goes, the retina will show signs of the effects on the blood vessels.
There may be narrowing of the arterioles, there may be pressure on the veins by crossing arteries, (av nicking), or even small hemorrhages or swelling at the back of the eye.
