    I am looking for anyone who may have had an acoustic neuroma which may
    have caused a dry eye condition and then had lasik surgery. Did the
    dry condition become worse after the surgery? Where there any other
    conditions that developed after the surgery?

    Pre-existing, diagnosed dry eye conditions are normally considered to
    be a potential counter-indication for laser refractive surgery ...
    which is KNOWN to aggravate/exacerbate/cause dry eyes, so ... not too
    sure what you're getting at, but the waters are bound to be quite
    murky on this subject.

    That said, you may want to post your inquiry in alt.lasik-eyes
