Q&A: Are blurry, itchy eyes a pregnancy symptom?

My eyes are blurry and itchy -- could pregnancy be causing this?

Re: My eyes are blurry and itchy -- could pregnancy be causing this?

The Bump Expert

No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. Those hormone changes can make your eyes itchy, red, and sensitive to light. And, that swelling in your boobs and ankles? It can extend to your eyes -- particularly troublesome if you wear contacts. The swelling of the cornea paired with a decrease in tear production makes eyes dry and uncomfortable, and can weaken vision. Try to limit the time you spend in contacts, and never wear them at night.

If you notice problems like blurred or distorted vision, contact your doctor right away -- it might be a sign of more serious conditions like high blood pressure or diabetes. Also check with your doctor before you use any eye medication, because certain drops can be harmful to baby. You’re not just eating for two, you’re seeing for two! The good news is, once baby comes, your eyes should correct themselves.

How funny! My contacts have been really itchy lately. I just thought that they must be getting old. After reading this article I realized that it started around when I would have become pregnant. Crazy hormones!

How bizzare! I've been noticing my eyes are very itchy and dry especially after I take my contacts out. I'm also experiencing mild nausea, some fatigue, and my boobs have gotten a little bigger and are tender...2 pregnancy tests came out negative but I'm seeing the doctor tomorrow. This will be my first!

I thought for sure it was allergies, eyes were so dry and kinda burned and watered. Glad to know this is an association and not allergies! I haven't been able to even put my contacts in.

this just happened to me last night, and I thought for sure I was going to come down with pink eye. Is there anything pregnancy doesn't effect :)

Q&A: Are blurry, itchy eyes a pregnancy symptom?

I'm discovering all sorts of crazy things that happen when you are pregnant! --my nose is bloody and my eyes are red and dry. It's almost like I am allergic to being pregnant. Every time I sneeze and blow my nose, the tissue is red. Everytime I try to concentrate on a computer screen or driving, my eyes get bloodshot and dry and, worst of all, ITCHY. I really think there isn't anything pregnancy doesn't effect, kmarsaglia. :-]

Q&A: Are blurry, itchy eyes a pregnancy symptom?

My eyes were so itchy yesterday that I had them almost swollen shut and it seems like when they burn, I sneeze, and my sinuses are plugged up. I was sick last week with a sinus infection, I thought maybe that had something to do with my eyes. All I do is sneeze and cough now with a runny/stuffy nose.

Wow and here I was blaming the cat! I'm 17 weeks and though I always have allergies they usually don't leave my eyes feeling this sensitive. I haven't worn my contacts since this winter because I usually have to go on break for the spring with my normal allergies, but am normally able to wear them again by now. Guess I will just have to go get a new pair in December and stick to my glasses for now...
