Things are getting better overall. I am 10 days post lasik. I am getting headaches and halos in one eye. I use a computer all day at work. When I get home things get better. I have not been using my drops as often as I was. Could dry eyes be contributing to the headaches and halos?

Lasik related dry eye is very likely the culprit.

Computer work is really tough on people with dry eyes (with or without Lasik). We do not blink as often as when we are not looking at a computer and we tend to concentrate on things other than our eyes. Using preservative-free artificial tears after Lasik will undoubtedly help the problem.

We have an article on Lasik dry eye treatment and Lasik headaches that you may find helpful.
