Pregnancy hormones are a powerful thing. They can make your boobs grow, turn you into a weeping wreck from one minute to the other and make you crave the most ridiculous food combinations, but did you that pregnancy can also affect your eye sight? To be completely honest, I had absolutely no idea that pregnancy hormones were that strong, so I was really fascinated when I found out that around 1 in 4 pregnant women experienced a change in prescription and 1 in 5 suffered from dry eyes.
Now, I was lucky and pregnancy didn’t affect my sight at all ( it was the insomniac baby that made me see things that weren’t there – my bed for example), but vision changes during pregnancy can affect both your well-being and confidence, so it’s important to get them checked out – even, if it’s just to be on the safe side. Usually, you’ve got nothing to worry about things are back to normal as soon as you’ve given birth, but serious conditions such a pre-eclampsia or diabetes could be an underlying issue and your eyes might be able to help your doctors find them before they cause any issues for you and your unborn baby.
