In brief: Yes
But it usually corrects itself in a few months.
I used to use refresh drops 4-5x a day in the beginning.

Dry eye is common for the first few months after lasik.
It typically resolves as you heal from the procedure.

In brief: Yes , above 40yrs
The flap of lasik cuts nerves in the cornea.
This takes 6 months to heal. These cut nerves cause dry eyes. Punctal occluders, drops and medications are helpful.
