Brief Answer:
lubricating eye drops

Detailed Answer:
My dear,
Thanks for sending your query to us.
Since you have had LASIK surgery lubricating eye drops should be used 3 to 4 times a day .Visine can be continued as both these eye drops are safe to use in the presence of early cataract.
Continue both for a while and do get back in case of any further query in this regard
