Chances are that Lasik Surgery isn't going to help you a whole lot since it usually only get a person within .25 diopters of neutral. It would be a lot of money for a .50 diopter improvement. You also mentioned that you have dry eyes. Lasik surgery cuts through some of the nerves in the cornea and can reduce tearing.
