Dry-eye symptoms are a common postoperative complication after cataract and refractive surgery and can have an adverse impact on visual recovery and outcomes. After LASIK surgery, common complaints (95% of patients) are of dry eye symptoms such as a gritty sensation, general ocular discomfort and fatigue, vision fluctuation, and ocular redness early in the postoperative period.

Dry eye symptoms tend to lessen over time in LASIK patients, with 20% to 40% of patients still experiencing dry eye six months after surgery. The postoperative dry eye rate is less in cataract patients but still experienced by the majority. Upwards of 87% of cataract patients use artificial tears one-month postop. The type of cataract surgery may also impact the severity of dry eye symptoms experienced.
