dry eyes caused by accutane

I am a long time contact lens wearer, and just ended my treatment of accutane about a week and a half ago. about a week ago i started noticing that my eyes were extremely dry to the point that i couldn't wear contacts without extreme discomfort. i was wondering if anyone else has had this experience since they got off tane, and if so, how long did it last?

Read your Rx info with Accutane, It does state that for contact wearers you may not be able to wear them even after your course is over.

Accutane can cause permanent dry eyes. You can try some GLA....

good luck, Go see a eye specialist and advise them you were on Accutane....
