... yper pigmentation, so make sure you wear your sun screen! Made my joints more sensitive, my skin would heal slower, cluster headaches and slightly diminished my eyesight more. Yeah, pretty scary stuff. It's basically an extremely high dose of Vitamin A, which can be toxic. What can you expect? ... (3 replies)
... I could tell this was working as after each session my eyesight would be very blurry, as the secreted oil lay on my eyeballs. ... (26 replies)

... I'm taking Accutane for body acne, my chest is clear now and my back and shoulders are on their way to being clear. I've only had 3000mg of Accutane go through my system so far, so should I stop because of the eyesight problem I'm more likely to relapse...hmmm. ... (8 replies)
... Exactly, the change in vision was irreversible. I mean, my vision wasn't terrible to begin with but I got bad headaches because I'd continuously strain my eyes without my glasses or contacts. Although, my vision could have gotten worse even without the accutane, but there's no way to tell for sure. (8 replies)
... So did you have worse vision while on the 'tane? A bit more blurry than you were used to? (8 replies)
... The same thing happened to me on accutane. I had pretty bad dry eyes and it irritated my contacts even more (not sure if you have contacts or anything). My eyes felt tender and I definitely felt like I had an eyelash stuck in there too. I just used eyedrops twice a day and stuck it out. A couple weeks after my treatment was over, so were my eye problems. (8 replies)
... Hey, I've been on Accutane for over 3 months now, on a fairly low dose but increasing each month (currently on 60mg daily). Over the last week my already slightly questionable vision has deteriorated. Working on the computer is difficult now as everything appears a little blurry. I've contacted my derm for advice and am waiting on his call, but I was wondering if anyone... (8 replies)
... Accutane has liver and mental health side effects, plus hair fall out eyesight problems such as dry eyes. Many medical researchers are saying that the side effects are so serious that accutane should be taken off the market. ... (15 replies)
... Hey Reeny, I'm sorry to hear about your vision problems. You may wish to try taking 10,000 IU's daily of vitamin A, as it is known to promote and restore eyesight. (20 replies)
... My sister took accutane 20 years ago - when she was 13, for severe acne. She had no side effects other than dry lips and skin, which mousterizer and chapstick solved. She was completly clear by the end of her one and only course. My other sister and I didn't take it back then, and have both suffered with acne throughout our teenage years and as adults! Our sister who took... (10 replies)
... years or much much sooner. It's those that have miserable effects that are left with clear skin and sometimes still left with bad skin. Accutane seems kinds of worthless. So many people have to go back on it a second, third, fourth or even a FIFTH time. What's the point? ... (10 replies)

... ve all that unability to focus for a long time, fatigue, and a bunch of other stuff...but i'm not sure if they are all related to accutane. for sure, i know the eyesight and ringing in ears are. ... (25 replies)
... I'm sorry, but I'm not going to sit and question every single one of my doctor's decisions. There is a reason why they are the doctor and I am not. I do, however, realize that there is a lot that goes on behind the scenes. But I am just having such a hard time with the fact that most people do NOT research the drugs they are given. Come on, I'm 19 years old and I... (26 replies)

... hy diet was and how profound an effect it would have on my skin until this year. I only wish I had known to give it a try before doing accutane. I believe that Accutane is the main cause I have such horrible eyesight and constant chapped lips. ... (49 replies)
... Lyndsey: My skin looks like crap too. It is blotchy and red, on top of that I have cysts, whiteheads, and tiny pimples. Imagine that. Sigh. My veins are becoming worst, I don't know what to do at this point. I look like incredible hulk from the green veins all over my body. I mean, do I quit Accutane? If I do, then there's not even an assurance my veins are going to get... (73 replies)
... if I should bother continuing Accutane for another month...and I guess I will...I must admit that there is improvement in my skin, but it is very minor. ... (73 replies)
