 Pregnancy brings an increase in hormones that
may cause changes in vision. In most cases, these
are temporary eye conditions that will return to
normal after delivery.
 As an expectant mother, you should
1. Be aware of vision changes during
pregnancy and
2. Know what symptoms indicate a
serious problem
GETTING REGULAR EYE CARE WHILE
PREGNANT
 Just because you are expecting a baby doesn't
mean you have to put off your regular eye exam!
You can have your eyes safely dilated while you are
pregnant.
 If you suffer from any pre-existing eye conditions,
like glaucoma, high blood pressure or diabetes, it's
very important to tell your eye doctor that you are
pregnant. Your eye doctor may watch closely for
changes in your vision during this exciting time in
your life.
REFRACTIVE CHANGES
 During pregnancy, changes in hormone levels can
alter the strength you need in your eyeglasses or
contact lenses. Though this is usually nothing to
worry about, it’s a good idea to discuss any vision
changes with an eye doctor who can help you
decide whether or not to change your prescription.
The doctor may simply tell you to wait a few weeks
after delivery before making a change in your
prescription.
DRY EYES
 Some women experience dry eyes during
pregnancy. This is usually temporary and goes
away after delivery. The good news is that
lubricating or rewetting eye drops are perfectly safe
to use while you are pregnant or nursing. They can
lessen the discomfort of dry eyes.
WEARING CONTACT LENSES
 It’s also good to know that contact lenses, contact
lens solutions and enzymatic cleaners are safe to
use while you are pregnant. To reduce the irritation
caused by a combination of dry eyes and contact
lenses, try cleaning your contact lenses with an
enzymatic cleaner more often. If dry, irritated eyes
make wearing contacts too uncomfortable, don’t
worry. Your eyes will return to normal within a few
weeks after delivery.
PUFFY EYELIDS
 Puffiness around the eyes is another common side
effect of certain hormonal changes women may
have while pregnant. Puffy eyelids may interfere
with side vision. As a rule of thumb, don’t skimp on
your water intake and stick to a moderate diet, low
in sodium and caffeine. These healthy habits can
help limit water retention and boost your overall
comfort.
MIGRAINE HEADACHES
 Migraine headaches linked to hormonal changes are
very common among pregnant women. In some cases,
painful migraine headaches make eyes feel more
sensitive to light.
 If you are pregnant and suffering from migraines, be
sure to talk to your doctor before taking any
prescription or non-prescription migraine headache
medications.
 Prenatal care helps keep both you and your unborn
child healthy. Be sure to tell your doctor if you are having
any problems. Keep your eye doctor up-to-date about
your overall health. Tell him or her about any pre-
existing conditions, and about any prescription and non-
prescription medications you are taking.
DIABETES
 Women who are diabetic before their pregnancy
and those who develop gestational diabetes need
to watch their vision closely.
 Blurred vision in such cases may indicate
elevated blood sugar levels.
HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE
 In some cases, a woman may have blurry vision or
spots in front of her eyes while pregnant. These
symptoms can be caused by an increase in blood
pressure during pregnancy. At excessive levels,
high blood pressure can even cause retinal
detachment.
GLAUCOMA
 Women being treated for glaucoma should tell
their eye doctor right away if they are pregnant
or intend to become pregnant.
 While many glaucoma medications are safe to take
during pregnancy, certain glaucoma medications
such as carbonic anhydrase inhibitors can be
harmful to the developing baby.
