How soon after giving birth can I have my eyes tested?

Question

How soon after having a baby can I have my eyes retested? My son is six months old and my eyes seem to be getting worse, I've been getting headaches and blurred vision, but wasn't sure if there was a time after having a baby to let hormones settle down.

Answer Written answer:
Qualified optometrist Simon Kay BSc(Hons) MCOptom answers this question.

Six months is plenty of time to wait to have an eye test. The results should be accurate and stable.
