Dry Eyes after having laser eye surgery, especially the most popular form LASIK, is not uncommon.  Luckily in most cases it tends to settle with intensive treatment.  This can involve simple unpreserved eye drops, to adding topical steroids to suppress the associated inflammation, to punctal occlusion and the addition of Restasis (cyclosporine).  Further discussion can be found on these treatments elsewhere on this website.

What is critical is that your eyes are thoroughly assessed before the procedure.  Any signs of dry eyes – and this is rather common – should be aggressively treated before the procedure to minimise complications.

Unfortunately even with the best assessment and intense pre-treatment problems can still occur.
