• Should I wait out the blurry vision I’m having 2 months after childbirth?


    Question:

    I'm a nursing mother of a 2-month-old and my vision seems to be getting blurrier every day and I'm experiencing strain. Should I get temporary glasses or wait it out?


    Answer:

    Please see an ophthalmologist. There are several reasons to have blurry vision in the perinatal time (the time when a mother is close to birth and shortly after), including hormone changes, fluid shifts and even gestational diabetes. It would be best to see an ophthalmologist now to find out what is causing the vision change.
