I just found the Medicaid I have will pay for an exam. I haven't had one in several years, I need new glasses - or at least new lenses - and on one will make them without a current prescription.
I would just wait out the couple of months until the baby is born but or re-up is in July and I'm not sure if we'll still qualify.

Now, since you already needed your glasses changed, and have already been dealing with that problem, if you can get super-cheap glasses now, go for it.

I would go ahead and get it if you already know you need a new prescription because you can always go back and get another one after the birth if you need to. This does assume that the glasses are covered - if I was going to be paying a couple hundred for a new pair of glasses, I'd probably hold off until after the birth.

FWIW we are having a hard time getting me fitted in contacts... not only do I already have severe astigmatism/nearsightedness, I also have moving eyes... they literally spin in their sockets So, pregnant or not, it's a pain. But my vision doesn't CHANGE during pg, I just get more sensitive... and can't wear contacts as long during the day

I had to get new glasses last month (at 7 months), and like others mentioned, I didn't get the drops but the relief I got as soon as I put on my new glasses....wow and if I my vision changes once my little one gets here, I'll have the lenses re-done, the frames can still be used.
I did when I was prego with my first daughter... Well I guess I waited, until she was a few weeks old... but I dont think it matters... I was told that my eye site wouldn't be "normal" again until a few months AFTER I stopped breastfeeding...
Its been almost four years and I still have those glasses!! I paid hardly anythign for them, just a small overage for making the lenses a bit thinner!!
Wait. What? Your vision changes? I've never heard of this, and am not happy to do so. I've always had 20/20 vision, or real close to it. Is it likely that I'll go from having near perfect vision to needing glasses? 'Cause honestly, I'm really kinda absentminded at times, and I'm not sure I can care for both an infant and eyewear.
