Sensitive eyes while pregnant! Anyone else??

Does anyone else have issues with their vision when pregnant? My eyes are so much more sensitive right now, I always have to wear sunglasses when outside too! I do notice flickering in my vision sometimes as well, if that makes any sense...not sure how to describe it. Im assuming this is from being pregnant, as I don't normally experience this. I did have an Optical migraine, where I actually saw a diamond shape in my vision.,..scared me sooo bad!! Let me know if anyone has or is experiencing the same! :)

  • I actually was rushed to the hospital when I had the Optical Migraine, because it sent me into a severe panic attack...I couldn't even talk. They thought I was having a stroke, my whole right side went numb too :(. It was awful, but they ended up saying it was just a "complicated" migraine. My Blood Pressure is never high either, sometimes when your visions messed up your bp is high. Going to talk to my dr more about it tomw...
