Carrots & Eyesight

Does eating carrots improve my eyesight?

While carrots are a decent source of vitamin A and antioxidants, substances that may help protect against cataracts or other eye conditions, eating carrots can't prevent or improve basic vision conditions like nearsightedness and farsightedness. In fact, fresh fruit and dark green vegetables like spinach contain even more antioxidants and may be better for you than carrots.
