Vision Changes During Pregnancy

Vision Changes During Pregnancy
A new survey has found  that pregnancy can lead to visions changes.

One in six pregnant women or new moms  experienced changes to their vision during pregnancy. Additionally, two  out of five new moms weren't even aware that vision changes during  pregnancy were possible!

The changes included dry eyes, migraines,  blurred vision, and sensitivity to light. The changes are caused by the  hormone changes your body undergoes during pregnancy, and can even be  related to other pregnancy side effects.

Some women experience a change in the shape of their cornea, leading to a change in their prescription.

Luckily, these vision changes are temporary, and usually resolve shortly  after delivery. But it's important that pregnant women see their  optometrist regularly, and let their doctors know about any changes to  their vision. While most vision changes during pregnancy are mild and  temporary, some changes can be indicative of a more serious problem.

Preeclampsia can cause headaches, high blood pressure, and vision  changes, and left untreated can have very serious consequences. So keep  your doctor informed of any vision changes you notice during pregnancy.  Even if it doesn't seem serious, it's better to be safe!
