Eye floaters
I have been on the acne drug, Roaccutane for almost a month and have developed "eye floaters"... It feels like "matter" is floating in my eye, I can see it especially when I look at a white area.. Could it be caused by the dryness because of Roaccutane? Will it go away and is it serious?

Hi Suzy
Yes this can be a side effect of the Roaccutane - please inform your doctor as he needs to monitor your optic (eye) nerve.
