    I am afraid pregnancy can affect your vision and make them hurt by changing hormones level, retenting fluid and blocking blood circulation. Take water retention as an example, it will thick and curve the cornea slightly resulting in eye problems based on individual sensitivity. Internal changes aside, pregnancy is along with the changes in existing eye conditions, particularly for some people with diabetes. They may suffer diabetic retinopathy due to damage of the blood vessels in retina. Furthermore, some diseases will progress to malignant diseases, like glaucoma, so you need to consult with your doctor and adjust your medication.

    Well, yes, pregnancy can lead to hurt eyes. According to some experts, when you are pregnancy, blood pressure will be high. Because of that, of course, your eyes will have high eye pressure. In the end, it will lead to eye pain. Also, blurry vision can occur during pregnancy period. Of course, you should know that eye hurt can be also caused by other factors such as eye infection. Also, long time exposure under sunlight can lead to it. By the way, for people who are pregnancy, eye irritation, dry eyes, eye discomfort, and vision changes can be common symptoms too. So you do not need to worry about it.
