How pregnancy affects the eye

Did you know that pregnancy can affect your eyes in various ways?

Change in vision
You may notice a vision change with hormonal change and fluid retention during pregnancy.
It may return after giving birth in some cases, but if the change is severe during the pregnancy, it’s good practice to get a temporally glasses for the changed prescription for your glasses or contacts. 

Dry eyes
You may notice your eyes become more dry with fluctuations in hormones. In some contact lens wearer, it may lead to more deposits staying with the contact lens and resulting in blurred vision with contact lens correction.

Diabetes in the eye
In those that have diabetes, you may notice vision fluctuate more significantly, there may be gestational diabetes in some mothers. 

It’s always better safe than sorry. Contact your Optometrist when any of these symptoms and concerns occur.
