    Well, yes, it is possible to have dry eyes after the surgery. As we know that this kind of surgery is related to the eyelid and eye muscle, skin. So in some degree, it will just lead to some eye problems after the surgery. According to some doctors, dry eyes can be normal after the surgery, so you do not need to be too worried about it. For this situation, it may be related to swelling and eye infection after the surgery. So you will feel dry and discomfort in your eyes. To treat it, you need to lubricate your eyes with an ophthalmic ointment at night and eye drops during the day. You should see your surgeon for further guidance. Anyway, just be careful about your eyes, after the surgery.
