Preservative Free Vials vs Non (Sterile) Bottles

At what point post lasik may one begin using non-preservative vials such as Soothe, Systane, etc. in order to experiment what works best for one?

Doctors are not exactly consistent on this issue. The more conservative position would be to use only preservative-free artificial tears as long as you have a Lasik-induced dry eye problem. That may be only a few weeks, or may be several months.
