Myopic Changes of the eyes

I am 7 months pregnant and been diagnosed with myopic changes of the eyes. Is it normal for a pregnant woman or something i need to worry about. I see floaters too. My opthamologist told me it is nothing to worry about. Please advise i am really worried about it.

It's not unusual to have a change in refraction due to the hormonal influences of pregnancy.  Just google key words "pregnancy and myopia" to find information.  Vision tends to stabilize 6 months after birth.

Many females get myopic during pregnancy.  That is why we do not recommend LASIK for pregnant females unless their prescription is stable.

In my experience in most, but not all female,  the myopia regresses after cessation of breast feeding.
