Is the Femtosecond Laser Safest for Dry Eyes

I have been using the Intralase femtosecond laser exclusively since 2003 and I have seen a significant decrease in prolonged dry eye postoperatively. I believe everyone who has LASIK has temporary dryness for about a week, but I have seen no cases of dryness that in anyway can compare to dryness that occurred in the mechanical LASIK days. It is my belief that the femtosecond laser is the first and most important step towards getting a great  LASIK outcome!
