    Thumbs down Dry eyes 4 years post lasik

    I had lasik 4 years ago. I had some dry eye issues when going to a hot country, when working at a computer for hours or when I was tired. I had lasek on the left eye as an enhancement in feb 2012.

    In April 2013 I took some antihistamines and nasal steroids - dry eyes. I took red clover herbal remedy for a week burning dry eyes. I developed depression and anxiety. I had drops of hyloforte, blink, celluvisc, sodium chloride hypertonic ointment and lacrilube. I am now on steroids which I have got relief with. I had severe burning eyes for 6 months.

    Can I ask has anyone experienced issues with taking medication after lasik did it cause dry eye. Also does anyone know if lasik dry eye does actually recover or is this a myth? I have also have presbyopia so have lost the close vision I used to have which has been worsened by lasik.

    Thanks a lot.

    Hi Elaw65,

    I experienced severe dry eye immediately post-Lasik. It stayed with me for an entire year. To help solve it, my eye doc (not my Lasik doc) put me on Restais, Azasite, and recommended fish oil supplements.

    While my dry eye was not caused by drugs, I wanted to reply to indicate that there are scenarios where Dry Eye goes away. For me it was 1 year of torture....

    Good Luck,
