... lbp, The only thing I can tell you about pregnancy and eyes is that my sister wore contacts before she ever got pregnant but, once she was pregnant, she couldn't wear her contacts anymore because somehow, a woman's eyes actually change shape while they are prego. So, her contacts didn't fit anymore. Being preggo didn't change her vision any. Just the shape of her cornea or... (8 replies)
