Question
Posted by: Alr | 2012/02/28

Glaucoma and pregnancy

My opthalmologist has prescribed me Ganfort eyedrops (to be taken once daily).

We are planning and trying for our second baby.

Should I continue using these drops or not?

It is nor recommended that you fall pregnant while using these drops as they are absorbed into the bloodstream.
You should not stop using them as untreated glaucoma can cause blindness. Rather delay the pregnancy.
