In brief: Generally No

Hypertension mainly affects the blood vessels in the back of the eye in the retina.
Occasionally with extreme and rapid increases in blood pressure, a small vessel can rupture in the conjunctiva over the white part of the eye (sclera) causing a dramatic red spot. Best to be checked soon.
