Can Minus 5 Eyes Give Birth Normally?
If the eye is minus 5, can it still give birth normally?
Good evening Diah123, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Until now, there has been no research that states that women who suffer from minus eyes, especially high minus eyes (require the use of glasses minus 6 or more), are not allowed to give birth normally. This is stated so because until now there has not been found any relationship between normal delivery with retinal detachment during normal delivery, so some researchers still recommend that pregnant women with minus eyes regardless of whether from mild to high to give birth normally, as long as there is no other complications to treat labor normally.
Although several studies as well as existing studies to date state that women with minus eyes are allowed to give birth normally, you should consult in advance about this matter with your obstetrician, whether your condition allows or not to have a normal delivery.
In addition, it should also be noted that during pregnancy, there are some changes in the eye such as decreased sensitivity of the cornea, thickening of the cornea and also an increase in the curvature of the eyeball, so that this can cause changes in vision and changes in the strength of the lens lenses that are more comfortable to use. However, this change is only temporary and it is recommended to check your eye condition to the eye doctor a few weeks after giving birth to adjust your glasses.
I hope this helps.
