Hey everyone! So I've been on Accutane (Claravis) for a little over two weeks. I've already noticed a big difference, and my face doesn't produce hardly any oil. But my eyes have been very dry, and I'm wondering what the best type of eye drops are to use? I don't wear contacts, so that's not a problem. Any help would be great, thanks! Posted Image

^yeah ditto the above comment. I'm 2 months in and my eyes have really started to dry up since I had my dosage upped to 60mg. Advice greatly appreciated.

systane eye drops work wonders for me. You can buy it at a local drug store like Walgreens. They are for severely dry eyes. Im currently on my third round of accutane and am having dry eyes and its the only thing I have found that helps

Dunno if this is common knowledge, but the pharmacist told me that I should use liquid drops (the ones I use are called Refresh I think, they're pretty good) for mild dryness, but if it gets more severe I should be using gel drops. Apparently they coat the eye better and stick around for longer. :)
