Dry eye is a very common side effect from lasik. First use preservative free artificial tears 4-5/day. Then consider punctal plugs to block the tear drains. You can also consider ointment at bedtime and/or Restasis twice a day. Also, drink more water, sleep more, don't have a fan blowing in you face and wear sunglasses when outside.

Dry eye after lasik surgery is treated with non-preservative artificial tears during the day, ointment at night, warm compresses, and omega-3 fatty acid supplementation. If persistent symptoms, Restasis and bilateral lower lid plugs may be placed. See your eye doctor.
