Dry eyes are a common problem. There are many reasons for dry eye. One of these is the side effect of Lasik surgery. Although dry eyes are common in normal circumstances, Lasik surgery is often the cause. However, you should visit a dehydrated eye expert in this case.

These are the reasons why Lasik surgery can cause dry eyes. A corneal flap must be created using either a laser or a steel blade during a Lasik procedure. This is where the corneal tissue and nerves are supposed to be removed. Further, any subsequent corneal reshaping by the laser will further damage the nerve tissue.
The nerve tissue may be more severe for patients with a more serious eyesight problem. Because of the entire disruption, it is usually difficult for nerve tissue to produce tears to moisten eyes after recovery and regrowth. Thus dry eye symptoms emerge.
For a supplement, the condition of the corneal surface or tear layer being qualified or smooth can be closely linked to another eyesight problem, "ghosting" or "fuzziness". Light entering the eyes meets with the tear layer at its very first contact. Visual acuity can be severely affected if the tear layer or corneal surface is deficient or irregular.
Consider the potential side effects of dry eye, ghosting, or fuzziness images, as a surgeon. I recommend several methods to reduce those risks after surgery. Have an overall exam concerning your eyes and evaluate any preexisting dry conditions.
Use the Intralase FS lasers to create the corneal flap. However, the steel razor blade microkeratome is not recommended. After the surgery, you can use artificial tears and gel lubricants over a number of days.
