I have heard that wearing contact lenses during the last stages of pregnancy can be difficult, not sure why and can't quite remember the source but I normally wear contact lenses but haven't worn them for a while now (need to get some more) - sorry that's not much help.

answered my own question


I have just googled it and apparantly pregnancy can change the shape of the eye/eyes temporarily and make wearing the lenses uncomfortable. It is supposed to go back to normal several weeks following the birth and they recommend wearing glasses. Gonna look spekky now in the birth photos, never mind at least I know I`m not going mad and will stop fiddling about taking them in and out.

I read that you shouldn't wear them in pregnancy because your eyes dry up quicker so they're more painful. I wore them on my wedding day when I was 14 weeks and they were OK but I did try again later on in pregnancy and found they itched a lot more and wee harder to get in and out so gave up and stuck to the glasses.

I haven't been wearing my contacts for awhile as had an infection so only put them in for the first time yesterday- just found that I was getting blurring on one of my eyes after a few hours - not sure whether its because I haven't worn them for awhile or pregnancy affecting my eyes.. Going to try again today to see whether I get the same problems.

I had a stage from about 16-14 weeks where I had excessive protein deposits and within half an hour of putting a new pair in they'd fog over and I'd be unable to see! My lovely optician gave me double the amount so I could change them more often (for free) and after 24ish weeks it sorted itself out.
