In brief: Probably not
By "eye laser", i assume you are referring to lasik or prk, i, e, a procedure done on the cornea to correct your vision without glasses.
It is very common to experience night glare for a few weeks following these procedures which generally improves and goes away over time. It is usually worse with treatments of higher corrections and in patients with larger pupils.

In brief: Hard to say
Swelling after laser vision correction usually dissipates over time, varying proportionate to the size of the correction.
Some glare can linger if the correction was large, or if the flap has wrinkles. Fortunately, glare becomes less annoying as you adapt to the new correction. Ask the surgeon about this, lubricate the eye, and turn on the interior lights in your car to reduce it while driving!
