The LASIK surgery recovery process is usually described as “quick and easy.” After a day or so, you can expect to be back to most or all of your normal activities without limitations. With that said, LASIK is surgery, and after the procedure, you probably won’t have the energy or desire to prepare elaborate meals while you initially recuperate. Planning ahead can ensure you’re getting the nutrients your body needs to heal without spending a lot of time or effort in the kitchen. Here, the team at Laser Eye Center of Miami suggests some great foods to eat after having LASIK.
Protein is essential for helping your cells and tissue recover after a medical procedure. Choose lean sources of protein, like eggs, chicken and fish.
Vitamin-Rich Fruits and Vegetables
Colorful fruits and vegetables are loaded with Vitamin C and other vitamins that are eye-friendly.
Carbohydrates give your healing body the energy it needs. But not all carbohydrates are created equal: you are better off selecting complex carbohydrates instead of simple carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates are packed with fiber and keep you fuller, longer.
Healthy fats help your body absorb the nutrients in the foods you eat. Good sources of healthy fats to enjoy (in moderation) include avocados, fatty fish and nuts.
