The Patient's Guide to Dry Eye Syndrome: Eye Surgery and Dry Eye8:58 PM
Everyone wants to see better without glasses, and with today's refractive surgeries, that is an attainable wish for many prescriptions! I talk to patients about LASIK several times a week, and we always discuss the potential side effects. For most, the biggest complication after LASIK surgery is dryness. Many people find they are using supplement artificial tear drops around the clock right after LASIK surgery, and this dryness can last anywhere from 6 months to years after the surgery date.
