Cataract and pregnancy

Hi all,
I’m pregnant for 5 months and I had noticed white spots on my eyes, One of my friends told me that these white spots may be a symptom of cataract. While browsing I had noticed that white spots may also occur if you have diseases like corneal edema, corneal ulcer, eye tumor, etc. I also read that blurry vision, double vision in a single eye, light sensitivity, and clouded vision are the important symptoms of cataract. My eyes are sensitive to light, I wonder whether I have cataracts. So I’m thinking of visiting See by intravision, an eye care clinic in Oakville for detailed examination and cataract treatments. Is it possible to have a medications or cataract surgery while pregnancy(if necessary). Do any complications occur due to this?

I have no idea about the surgery, but I definitely think seeing an opthamologist would be a good idea. Your vision is rather important.

Well a cataract treatment is done by laser and only the doc's can help you to know whether it will be harmful to the baby or not
