    is anyone else having vision problems?

    I have been seeing black spots here and there.. sometimes they kinda fly by the corner of my eye type of thing.. then they disappear. This happens through the day..

    Anybody else have this problem? Is this normal?

    P.S let me also mention i am Far Asided and am supposed to wear glasses or contacts but have not been wearing them for years....maybe this makes it worse?

    Hey,

    Ive been getting silver spots flashing. It can be a sign of pre eclampsia but midwife done all the checks and my BP and urine was all normal. She said if i get any headaches to call her straight away. Another thing she said was 'what colour are the spots' She said if they are black it can be tiredness or lack or iron? Your notmeant to get any twinkeling silver stars like ive been experiencing but they cant seem to find anything wrong ive had my eyes tested and all the other pre eclampisia checks so i must be going crazy!

    it can be a sign of pre-eclampsia but sometimes its just if your blood pressure is slightly too high or too low (i think) i had the same in my first pregnancy and get it now if i get up too fast or bend over and get up again, i also get it when not pregnant, if you get worried/it gets worse speak to your mw/doc.

    I've always been under the impression that seeing black floating spots was linked to blood pressure.. But I could be wrong..

    I had it alot during the last stages of pregnancy last time round and my BP was very high..

    I would mention it to your MW, or even pop along to your doctors to get your BP checked by the nurse just to be sure it's not that..

    hey honey, i have this and have had low blood pressure so far throughout my pregnancy. So think it is to do with that. It is total weird keep seeing things out the corner of my eyes, thought i was going mad at first till i realised vision disturbances like this were to do with low blood pressure. Silver or white flashing/stars should be checked out as it could be a sign of high blood pressure :) x

    If the "floaters" are black and appear to be inside your eye, I would go to an opticians to get them checked. There can be many causes for these, some serious some not at all serious. x

    well about 1 1/2 weeks ago i was checked because i was worried about pre eclampsia. but my urine was good and he said my BP was Great ... :)

    I already have vision problems and have not been wearing my contacts or glasses... just because i dont feel like it lol. This might be making it worse i suppose

    yeah i have not black or white spots, I have colored spots! stars :) It's fun to be me lol
    don't think it's anything, just happens when I turn too quick. My BP is low and urine as fine as well. Something to add to my list why I don't like being pregnant at all :)
