Dry-eyes upon waking...due to Lasik?

    Hey folks,

    Shortly after my Lasik surgery 10 years ago(?), I started waking up with very dry eyes.
    When complained during follow ups, they gave me very little info but advised me to use eye drops.
    So for years and even currently I use Refresh upon waking. For a while, I thought it was
    the ceiling fan in the bedroom but my dry eyes persisted when the ceiling fan was off.

    Two questions: 1. Due to my lasik, am I not getting the full spectrum UVA/UVB rays?

    2. Any advise on what or how to better my dry eyes? At some point I thought it
    was a hormonal issue.

    Thanks Lahelada!

    I've read that before, and after reading for another time, I am still confused or not totally understand the damage it may have caused for light absorption.

    I still have corks in my tear ducts to prevent tears from draining. Still, dry eyes continue.

    Luckily, unlike some of the friends who did Lasik in same period who now wears glasses again due to regression, I still have 20/20.

    I do wear readers now. It's annoying as heck. Can't fight mother nature! Or is it something that I can do?
