Why is my vision changing?

As much as 15 percent of pregnant women will experience some sort of change to their eyesight. Chalk it up to hormonal changes, your fluctuating metabolism, fluid retention (which can fatten up your cornea), and blood circulation, which can all wreak havoc on your eyes and your eyesight.

Before you go booking your laser surgery (major no-no) or getting fitted for contacts, know that this little hiccup is most likely temporary and should resolve itself within a few months of pregnancy. If you think your vision has been impacted by your pregnancy, hit up an ophthalmologist for an exam and to figure out next steps.
