Dry Eye Update



2 weeks later my right eye is still dry and blurry so I went back to the optometrist for a follow-up today. No good, she said that the keratitis has gotten worse and that now my cornea was also slightly swollen :( She prescribed prescription steroid drops this time and said she was going to call my derm to confer about either taking me off accutane or reducing my dosage :(( I am so bummed out. I hope I can stay on at a low dose since this drug is my only hope. The silver lining is that punctal keratitis is fully reversible and mine is still pretty minor.

I will keep you guys posted. In the meantime, given the worst-case scenario, anyone know about the possible success of a mere 2 months of accutane? I've responded really well so far, no new actives in about 3 weeks and total clearance of all chest and back acne and ultra-stubborn nose blackheads. I know it's not ideal, but I'm wondering if it has made a difference for anyone.
