I have dry eyes with my contact lenses, will I have dry eyes after LASIK?

Many people have LASIK because they have dry eyes with their contact lenses. I usually ask my patients if they have dry eyes without contact lenses. This is more of an indicator of an underlying dryness. In any case, your consultation should include a dry eye test and discussion with your surgeon if you are concerned about it. Dryness is one of the “nuisance” complications that can happen after LVC. It does not significantly affect the vision in general but can be annoying.
