Disturbed vision, dry eye, migraines. Laser eye surgery done. History of anxiety, tension disorder. Treatment?

Good Morning, My wife has undergone laser eye surgery some 6 years ago. Since then she has had nothing but regular occurrences of disturbed vision immediately followed by migraine headaches. We have been told by an Eye Consultant that as a direct result of the laser eye surgery, she now suffers from severe dry eye . This in turn, over the years has brought about tension & anxiety in herself as we search for treatment. Each time the disturbed/distorted vision comes, usually now around once or sometimes twice weekly, she is devastated and has a genuine fear of taking to many tablets as she has carried a sickness phobia since she was very young. Can you suggest any direction and/or medication we might consider using to alleviate if not remove the tension/anxiety etc that her current position brings about in herself.

now adays many good artificial tears /lubricating eye drops/gels are available..ask her to use..get her fundus also examined because laser only corrects the eye power doesn'nt affect anyother abnormality like myopic degenerations..because of high minus number..intraocular pressure also should be measured..
regarding sickness phobia..councilling should be done..and one has to understand facts of life..and should have an ability to fight back..
since she has been operated..everything should be as doc's advice..please take care of her..u will be blessed..
