Can I be dilated when I'm pregnant?

The doctors encourage dilating the eyes during pregnancy for any of the following conditions:

  • Gestational Diabetes or Diabetes Mellitus.
  • Recent onset of flashes of light in vision, or recent onset of new floaters in vision.
  • Significant shift in prescription.

Although dilation medications are very safe, dilation is usually postponed without the above conditions until after nursing.
