It's common to have problems with contacts while on accutane. My recommendation is wearing glasses until you are done with your course. But who knows, maybe someone has a better solution? I'm just posting what I've heard.

Get some good rewetting drops for soft lenses and use them a lot...especially if you nap in your lenses. My recommendation would be to take them out if you are going to sleep.

I've posted to this topic a lot...but go here for the last time I responded with what my optometrist recommended.

I was able to wear my lenses my entire course.

Hey Jim,

I had the same problem early on. What I did was use Genteal every morning before I put them in and in the evening when I took them out. Throughout the day, I used Refresh which seemed to help. They were never as comfortable as before, but using those drops has allowed me to keep wearing my contacts.
