  • I stopped wearing them during my first pregnancy- they got really dry and scratchy feeling. Since then my eyesight keeps changing so there isn't much point to paying for a year's supply that won't be good for the full year if it changes again. Plus, glasses are easier to deal with with an 18 month old kid trying to poke your eye out lol.

  • Yes, I had constant problems wearing contacts and keeping my eyes from getting dry and scratchy. I ended up getting LASIK when my vision changed more, and got silicone punctum plugs when they dryness didn't go away. Getting the plugs in my eyes has helped so much! It was really easy. Five minutes tops, and I've had them for a year.

  • Are you nursing? I have very dry eyes during pregnancy and nursing, but they always get better after weaning.
