Blurry vision?

Has anyone experienced blurry vision with pregnancy? The last 2 or 3 days my eye sight has gotten worse (I have kind of blurry vision anyway). I've even been wearing my glasses and still have trouble reading the computer screen.?

I have PIH and know that they tell you to watch for blurry vision, spots, etc. I've seen spots quite a bit (the Dr. knows this) but I'm not sure this is worth calling about. I have an appointment on Thursday. I was totally going to wait and then someone else posted about it on 3rd tri. Everyone said to call the Dr. so now I don't know. I did think vision changes were somewhat normal in pregnancy!

TIA?

    Big SmileHI...

    I would say call your doctor on Monday...it doesn't sound horrible, but I would want to check. ?Of course, I'm no doctor...LOL. ?I think as long as you are not having anything else going on...there is not need for extreme worry!

    ?

    I'm feeling unusually dizzy tonight. ?Like the kind of feeling you get when you are drunk and the room is spinning around. ?NOT a good feeling. ?Hopefully that will go away soon...

    ?

    Anyway, hope it gets better and doesn't cause you too much worry.

    Well you happen to have caught me at the right time! I ended getting a scratch on my cornea about two weeks ago so I was in and out of the optometrists office a few times.

    I told him that I thought I might need to up my prescription and he told me that he wanted to wait about 3 months after birth and do another eye exam because often in the last tirmester or so, vision can be altered pretty significantly....especially if you already wear glasses or contacts.

    I would talk with your optometrist (or OB) about it, but they'll likely say the same thing...something happens during pregnancy that temporarily throws vision off.

    I had heard once that you shouldn't have Lasik surgery before PG b/c your vision can change during PG.............so seems like a normal pregnancy side effect. But I'd call the Dr anyway, especially since you have PIH.  ;)

    Thanks ladies. I will call just to see. I'm sure it's nothing. The doctors have made me the paranoid pregnant lady now that I'm on bed rest! I was totally relaxed before!
