Common problem: Postpartum changes in vision are common, Hormonal changes and water retention, can cause “refractive error” where your eyes have issues focusing. Previous eye conditions, such as glaucoma, high blood pressure, or diabetes, especially during pregnancy can alter your eyesight even more. See an eye Dr for an evaluation, you may need corrective lenses from here on.
