    Glaucoma medication exposure is of concern in pregnancy, labor and delivery, and nursing, as is dose and timing, with early and late exposures having different outcomes. Most pregnant women prefer to take few or no medications, so there are few drug studies, but we do have the FDA use-in-pregnancy rates. Dr. Martha Wright gives an overview of categories A-D and X, commonly prescribed glaucoma medications and pregnancy, and glaucoma surgery and pregnancy.
