Re: high myopia and pregnancy

It is a concern back home, not here. I went through a couple of check ups there, to monitor retina, eye pressure, etc. The research and the cases are well known, I think it is rare so they don't bug people with it here, as it is with other issues. Csecs are considered for high myopia back home, I was well aware of it, since I had care there and here and delivered here. I went to be checked here as well prior delivery, they were a little bewildered here that elsewhere in the world patients are on top of this info.

I'd say, have your eyes checked here in an opthalmology clinic, I am not sure where there is one near you. In our region, the best one is in Lausanne, top notch. It is just one visit, you will get your reassuring info and will be able to enjoy your pregnancy.

I was, in the meantime, a few years after delivery, diagnosed with cataracts in both eyes, linked to high myopia, so am not sure if it has something to do with pregnancy, kinda living in a denial as it is as I cannot make myself undergo the lense replacement and optical nerve fixing op.
