Vision Change While Pregnant

Has anyone else experienced this? I'm 12 wks pg and I've noticed my vision changing a little. I've noticed I'm getting a lot of eye strain headaches at work lately and it's getting annoying. I don't want to get glasses as I had laser surgery five years ago to be free of glasses. I've taken 4 tylenol today already and it's not helping. If I rub my eyes I can feel the pressure go away. Maybe I should get a light pair for work. Anyone else have this happening? Does it go away after birth?

Are you sure the headaches are from eye strain? A lot of women when they are pregnant get headaches because we cut caffiene out of our day, due to the increased risk of miscarraige a__sociated with it. But doing that gives you headaches. I found this out after suffering from daily headaches for over a week. so try adding a bit of caffiene to your day, just do it moderately, and see if it helps.

I do still drink caffeine but not as much. But usually a can a day or a cup of coffee so that's probably not it. I seem to get two or three headaches a week and Tylenol doesn't see to help and I'm used to Advil but I can't take them anymore.

Well c___p, I was hoping it would be something super simple, but I guess not. Maybe you should try getting a light pair of gla__ses for work. Just would suck to still need gla__ses after paying for laser surgery just so you wouldn't.But if Advil is what you used to take and you can't anymore because you are pregnant then that would mean you were getting these headaches before you were pregnant right? If that is the case then it isn't going to go away after birth.

I seem to notice my eyes feel strained while I am at work (desk job) but that I am able to see fine outside of work without the headaches and tired feeling eyes.

No I didn't get the headaches before I was pg so I don't know if it's a combination of the two. I'm fine after work but I thought I read somewhere that your vision can fluctuate when pg.
