In brief: Varies

Lasik can cause dryness, which for most, but not all patients, is generally temporary until the nerves grow back into the flap.
There are low risks of over or undercorrection, and a low risk of infection, as with any type of surgery. It is best to discuss your specific risks and benefits of laser eye surgery in depth with your eyemd before making an informed decision.
