Summary of "Eye and pregnancy."

Pregnancy may cause ocular changes, for example refractive changes or contact lens intolerance. A number of ocular diseases may deteriorate. Especially preexisting diabetic retinopathy may worsen. Vaginal delivery is nearly always possible. Caesarean section is not required due to myopia, peripheral retinal degenerations or after retinal surgery. Most topically applied drugs usually used in ophthalmology are safe during pregnancy.
