3. PREGNANCY MIGHT TRIP UP YOUR VISION

-

You can blame fluid retention. It puts pressure on the cornea and lens, which changes their shape and can lead to a fuzzy view starting at the second trimester, says Jessica Shepherd, M.D., an ob-gyn at the Baylor University Medical Center, in Dallas. Each pregnancy is different, so this can happen with your second or third, even if it didn’t with your first. But it’s temporary and should clear up within nine months postpartum. Just mention any big shifts to your doctor to rule out gestationa­l diabetes or hypertensi­on.
