I'm wondering if anyone else had dealt with really bloodshot and dry eyes on Accutane? I'm on 80mgs and starting month 4 and man my eyes drive me crazy! I try to not use the eye drops too much but they get soo red. I look so awful and I feel like this is just a trade off and just as embarrassing as acne:/
Morning:Cerave foaming face wash in shower. Moisturize with Cerave/ derm cream samples. Pur Minerals foundation, original formula.
Night: Cerave face wash and Clarisonic every 3 days or so for exfoliation.
Internally: 40mg of Accutane started 3/16/13! 80mg started 4/15...DONE 8/19/13! OTC bcp blaahhh:/ Try to eat as healthy as I can and balance stress levels.
Please let it stay!

Hey there, what eye drops are you using?  I found my eyes were a particular issue, sometimes bloodshot, sometimes just dull and even quite yellow when on isotretinoin.  I even had some occasions when I went strangely blind for a minute or two - ceasing the meds for a few days resolved this though.


I did some trial and error and found Murine 'irritation and redness relief' eye drops pretty good.  link here:

Usually applied them 3 times a day or as required when I was at my highest dose
