Do you wear glasses or contacts?
Are you planning to have backup vision correction for labor and delivery?
Will you be able to wear contacts during labor and delivery?

Do you wear glasses or contacts? Yes, I have very, very, very bad vision
Are you planning to have backup vision correction for labor and delivery? Absolutely
Will you be able to wear contacts during labor and delivery? I was able last time. I'll fight tooth and nail on that one. Glasses can be annoying sometimes and I can't see my hand in front of my face without them/contacts.

I should wear glasses/contacts, but I don't I haven't had my eyes checked in years and years, not since I was maybe 15? OMG that's at least 10 years o_o

I hate wearing glasses though and I don't have patience for contacts. I've been wanting to get some laser eye surgery but I haven't gotten around to it.

I actually am not physically able to wear contacts. I have glasses but I function very well without them (they are really only super important for driving - especially at night).

My plan is to take them to the hospital but I dont expect to wear them at all during labor/delivery.

This is an interesting question that I havn't even thought of! Yes, I will most certianly be wearing my contacts during L&D. I will probably bring back up glasses, but the chance of them falling out is rare... I havn't had my contacts fall out before. I will make sure to put a brand new set of contacts in for that day lol. I am pretty much blind without my contacts/glasses, in fact I feel really sick my vision is so blurry. So it is a def must have!

You ladies planning on wearing contacts better make sure you check with your providers and the hospital policies! Sometimes your doctor has to write a note that you are allowed to wear them.

I wear glasses - I haven't been able to wear contacts since I was pregnant with Dalton. It's weird. I can't see at all without them. I think Tim took them off of me during labor with Dalton, but I don't remember. I know I had them on right after. I think he took them off when I was pushing because I remember my midwife saying she forgot to bring the mirror and I told her I couldn't anything anyway
