No, prescription (antibiotic) eye drops will not cause a change in blood pressure. Many things can elevate the blood pressure, however, so if your readings are higher, you will need to see your medical provider. A change in BP meds or and adjustment in dosage is sometimes necessary. I am not familiar with your other two medications - Nevanac or Durezol -- so it would be best to check with the medical provider who prescribed them, or your pharmacist. Most topical eye medications are not going to cause systemic effects, such as raising your blood pressure.
