hmm.. would like to ask after pregnant still can continue wearing contact lens?
Yes I continued to wear contact lenses when I was pregnant but my eyes got dry more easily so I didn't wear for long periods.
Of course you can!!! No problems at all!
I've been wearing since Day 1 too....no probs
uh why not...? doesnt seem to affect your pregnancy in any way at all.
oh ok thanks all for replying! =)
Heyhey then what about during birth ?
Want to see baby clearer right ? Spec very troublesome :P
Hi Verona, not advisable to wear to delivery.
(1) Might be long hours in delivery suite. Your eyes might get too dry.
(2) Can't move around during delivery if you're on epidural and even if you're not, the pain might immobilise you
(3) If end up need emergency c-sect and need to go under GA, need to take off also. And if it's emergency, doubt you'd be in right mind to be considering things like contact lenses
Anyway, before delivery the nurses will also ask you to take off any jewellery, watches and stuff like contact lenses...
yeah i agree, i didnt wear them during my delivery.
cos need to strain n all.
think if wear contacts it will irritate your eyes.
haha, in the delivery room, no need to wear specs even!
contact lens cant be wear during birth coz you will never knw if you might need a emergency c-section~ Specs should be allow when baby is born~
i am wearing my specs during my delivery...
Ew then i bring along my specs , for safety & thought will have less trouble with contacts on . Thanks ^^
Me too..I have been wearing contact lenses before and during my pregnancy..And yah my eyes tend to dry up easily..Have to carry around the eye-drops..And during delivery i think its wise to wear specs instead coz ive heard of mummies who actually emerge with bloodshot eyes after pushing so hard..So with contact lenses on,it might make matters worse..??
hmmmm, thought of sneakily wearing my contacts for delivery..... if gotta go for emergency c-sect or it gets uncomfy, just pluck out and throw, hehehe.... see how it goes , . shhhhhhhh....
