Q Do eyes feel very dry after surgery? Although, this varies from person to person, how long could this last for (max period)?

Ans.    We check every patient for dryness before the surgery (during your LASIK evaluation). If you have  severely dry eyes, LASIK is discouraged until the dryness is treated. If the dryness is mild, EpiLASIK is the choice.

However, temporarily for some days to some weeks (upto 6 weeks) one can feel ‘dry’. Using lubricating eye drops decreases dryness for those sitting on the computers for very long hours [computer vision syndrome].
