I also saw spots a few times after birth usually if I was doing more then I should like out grocery shopping or something else too tiring. I would definitly have it checked out though if it made me worry.

Melanie,
8 weeks may seem like a long time, but your body has been through so much and it just may take more than a couple of months to heal. I know it must be so frustrating to still not feel so great, but give yourself a little more time.

Like Sabrina and Tanya, I also saw an eye doctor post PE. It can't hurt to get your eyes checked out if you are concerned.

Take care.

I still have spots. I went to see my opthamologist and he said it was damage from my HBP when I was pregnant. The blood pressure squeezed debris and protein into the fluid of my eyes. He said at this point it is here to stay. As with Tanya, mine is worse in bright sunlight or lights.

More than 7 yrs have gone by and I still see spots. I was sent to an eye surgeon for a thorough exam after my severe PE experience to see how bad the damage was. Good news for me is that there is nothing wrong with my eyes, I was told the black floaters may or may not fade with time. I find its worse on bright sunny days. Give yourself lots of time to recover from the PE. Toodles...
