Eye and pregnancy.
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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Proteins produced by organs of the mother or the PLACENTA during PREGNANCY. These proteins may be pregnancy-specific (present only during pregnancy) or pregnancy-associated (present during pregnancy or under other conditions such as hormone therapy or certain malignancies.)
The state of PREGNANCY in women with DIABETES MELLITUS. This does not include either symptomatic diabetes or GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE induced by pregnancy (DIABETES, GESTATIONAL) which resolves at the end of pregnancy.
Unintended accidental pregnancy, including pregnancy resulting from failed contraceptive measures.
Pregnancy in which the mother and/or FETUS are at greater than normal risk of MORBIDITY or MORTALITY. Causes include inadequate PRENATAL CARE, previous obstetrical history (ABORTION, SPONTANEOUS), pre-existing maternal disease, pregnancy-induced disease (GESTATIONAL HYPERTENSION), and MULTIPLE PREGNANCY, as well as advanced maternal age above 35.
Diabetes mellitus induced by PREGNANCY but resolved at the end of pregnancy. It does not include previously diagnosed diabetics who become pregnant (PREGNANCY IN DIABETICS). Gestational diabetes usually develops in late pregnancy when insulin antagonistic hormones peaks leading to INSULIN RESISTANCE; GLUCOSE INTOLERANCE; and HYPERGLYCEMIA.
