What To Do if You Have Dry Eye Syndrome and Would Like Laser Eye Surgery

If you have dry eye syndrome and are interested in having LASIK eye surgery in Miami, please make an appointment with our Miami eye specialists and discover the possibilities.  Dry eye syndrome causes a person to experience scratchy, burning eyes and it may feel as if a foreign object is stuck in the eye, causing blurred vision and excess watering.  Having dry eye syndrome doesn’t automatically disqualify you from being a candidate for LASIK or other laser eye surgery procedures.

  • Schedule a consultation with an eye specialist.  Whether you have dry eye syndrome or not, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution to correcting vision.  Your vision and the health of your eyes will need to be evaluated by an eye doctor who can then recommend the best way to move forward with your eyes.
  • If you have dry eye syndrome, the eye specialist will try to evaluate the underlying cause of your dry eyes.  Dry eye syndrome may be able to be treated before you have a vision correction procedure.
  • The severity of your dry eyes will determine whether or not you are a candidate for laser eye surgery.  Certain procedures like PRK (Photorefractive Keratectomy) may be more suitable for people with dry eye syndrome, although a doctor will need to examine your eyes before making this determination.

Don’t avoid inquiring about LASIK just because you have dry eye syndrome.  Millions of people across the country enjoy a more convenient life free from glasses and contact lenses thanks to laser eye surgery.  You can experience this convenience and enjoy near-perfect vision today.
