    Yes, once you get pregnant, the eyes will feel dry because of the inner body excretion. During that time, your eye pressure will be high which will cause the eyes feel dry. However, the dry eyes can also be caused by the too much use of eyes in front of the computers. Thus, you'd better go to see the doctor and have a check on the eyes. And if you get pregnant, you should not wear the contact lenses.

    Well, of course not. Dry eyes can not be a sign of the early pregnancy. As we know that if you do not have the necessary balance of these three layers in your eyes, or if your eyes do not make enough tears to coat the eye, you may have dry eye. Generally speaking, there is nothing to do with the early pregnancy. Of course, in some cases vitamin deficiency may contribute to dry eye problems, such as vitamin a deficiency. So if you do not intake enough vitamin A, you may also experience problems with dry eye. To treat it, you can take some foods which are rich in vitamins such as the fishes and some other vegetables. Besides, if you have dry eyes, you may experience scratchiness, itching and burning on the surface of your eyes. So anyway, it can be dangerous. Also, there are also some other reasons which can lead to dry eyes, such as the eye strain.

    In a manner of speaking, dry eyes can be one of a sign of early pregnancy. Your eyes are dry because there's been a change in the amount or type of tears you produce. This means your eyes are not kept moist enough. It's quite common to have dry eyes while you're pregnant. It's thought to be caused by hormonal changes, particularly a drop in male hormones called androgens. While, sometimes dry eye syndrome, as it's known, is real problem. If you use contact lenses, you may find it hard to keep it because of pregnancy. So, dry eyes can be one of a sign of early pregnancy.
