Has anyone experienced a decline or change in their vision during pregnancy? I've had a decline in vision from 20/30 to 20/50 in only my left eye which I feel is unusual. Been to 2 eye doctors and they found nothing else. I suffer from amblyopia in my left eye so I didn't know if that could be the reason why my left eye was affected and not my right eye since I already had a preexisiting condition. Any advice or comments would be greatly appreciated!
I've been pregnant once 2 years ago with a healthy pregnancy and my eyesight did decline during my pregnancy. I've also been pregnant 3 times this year, going through unfortunately my 3rd m/c but my vision has gotten just a little worse again.
I'm sure it will bounce back again now that I will be taking a break from conceiving for at least 5 months.
I also had my vision change a lot during my first month. I went to the doctor and he couldn't even get 20-20 with the corrective lenses! I was sent to the opthamologist and he said that I had something where my retina was leaking fluid...at the time, I didn't know I was pregnant. Now that we know I'm pregnant they said it was due to that, and that my vision should return completely after the first trimester. Weird, I know.
Due to fluid changes in your body and your eyes, your prescription may change throughout your pregnancy. It is a good thing that you went to your eye doc to rule out any eye diseases affecting your vision. It probably has nothing to do with the ambyopia in your left eye. It should stabilize within 6 months post-baby. Hang in there.
I had some vision problems with the first few months of this pg. But i also was having blood pressure problems...now my vision is normal and my blood pressure is under control for the most part. I think it was the one affecting the other.
