Event Description

I had lasik surgery on (b)(6) 2010. The doctor explained to me that i would have dry eyes for up to 6 months after the procedure. It has now been about 18 months since the surgery, and i still have chronic dry eyes. I put lubricant eye drops in my eyes at least a few times a day. When i reported this to the doctor at my 12-month check-up, her response was that i've probably always had chronic dry eye and i just notice it more now. I have never had a problem with dry eyes until after this surgery.
