    Question ? about eye doctor appt.

    I have an eye dr appt this week and want to know if it is okay to have my eye dilated? I never go to the eye dr when pg out of fear of the eye dilating drops.

    So, is it okay to have my eyes dilated while bf?

    I think my optometrist said they weren't sure if it was okay so they didn't do it.

    My husband is a Board certified ophthalmologist and he said it's OK to have your eyes dilated if you're nursing. GL
