Have there been any reports of laser eye surgery causing periodic blurry vision in both eyes?

A friend of mine wore contacts for years, and about 10 years ago got laser surgery which left his vision quite good. About a month ago, though, he started having occasional bouts of blurry vision. They last anywhere from 45 minutes to several hours, and he can't see anything on a computer screen - unfortunately his job is all computers. He can see some basic stuff, and he doesn't have problems navigating, but he is troubled by these.
An ophthalmologist sent him for diabetes testing, because he is overweight, but it came back negative. They said "whatever else it might be, it's something very rare."
What could be causing this? It happens on a near-daily basis and it's very troubling to him. Any input would be helpful! (I'm hoping it's not related to the laser surgery; it IS in both eyes.)
