    Actually, every woman is happy and beautiful during the pregnancy, but with this joy, pregnancy causes many hormonal changes in a woman. The body of women may be affected by these changes, including double vision. When you're pregnant, you have more blood circulating in your body and around your eyes. And then your eyes are affected by the same build-up of fluids that may give you thickened ankles or bloating. Your lens and cornea may thicken, and the pressure of the fluid within the eyeball may change. Lastly, these changes together can cause your vision to blur. When you're pregnant, you have more blood circulating in your body and around your eyes.So, you should take out your contacts if you wear usually. Fortunately, this bad condition will be changed into good after several months of giving birth. Keep a inner peace during your pregnancy. Good luck.

    This kind of situation may happen but not certain to be, Pregnancy hormones will decrease tear production, leading to eye dryness, irritation, and discomfort. Hormones also cause fluid buildup in your eyes, the same way they make you have swollen ankles and feet. This can lead to changes in the curvature of your eye, which causes a change in your vision during pregnancy. So if you wear glasses or contacts, don't bother with a new prescription until after you've had your baby. If your contacts are bothering you, consider wearing your glasses until after delivery, or use lubricating drops recommended by your eye doctor if your eyes feel especially dry and discomfort.

    Yes, it might be, but don't worry, it's common. Double or Blurred vision are common symptom happens during people's pregnancy. Many women have experienced them. They may occur before you know you are pregnant and even after the pregnancy. Vision changes may disturb you a lot during your early stages of pregnancy. Your ankles and face are starting to swell after you are pregnant. The fluid within your eyes also starts increasing, that will affect your vision, that's way you get double vision. There some thing I need to tell you that the eyes problems occurred during pregnancy may caused by more serious problem. So it is better for you to have a check in hospital.
