Many who undergo Lasik surgery to correct their vision experience dry eyes. The condition usually gets resolved within a couple of months, but for some these symptoms persist and even if they do not experience any vision loss, chronic dry eyes affect their quality of life. They have to resort to artificial tears and other medications to get relief from these symptoms. Now the moot question is: Who is a likely to get dry eyes after Lasik surgery? A recent research has found that people with a certain low level of tear production are more likely to develop a chronic dry eye syndrome after LASIK. These findings should help ophthalmologists determine if pretreatment is necessary before surgery or if surgery is appropriate at all for an individual.
