Probably: "Eye supplements" often contain a large number of vitamins/micronutrients which may overlap with ingredients in a prenatal vitamin to result in higher-than-recommended doses of certain ingredients. Excess vitamin C is removed by the kidneys, but not all excesses can be removed by the body so easily. It would be better to take a daily prenatal vitamin and no further supplements while pregnant.
