Will my eyes be dry after LASIK eye surgery?

Although occurring very rarely, all patients should be aware that dry eyes are a possible complication following LASIK eye surgery. Laser vision correction makes everyone's eyes somewhat dryer afterwards, but only temporarily. Your surgeon will carefully test you for the potential of developing this complication after surgery if you suffer from a history of dry eyes or are bothered by contact lenses. After surgery, all patients should use tear drops as required.
