    Definitely, you can improve your vision by intake vitamin A, and it works wonders on eyes. Vitamin A is safe for most people when used in doses less than 10,000 units per day. Actually, vitamin A is a group of antioxidant compounds that play a significant role in vision, and it helps the surface of the eye, mucous membranes and skin be effective barriers to bacteria and viruses, reducing the risk of eye infections, respiratory problems and other infectious diseases. Vitamin A is also required for the proper development and functioning of our bones, skin, immune system, and many other parts of our bodies. Besides, for many eye problems for example dry eyes, then you can use vitamin A eye drops that is quite effective for the treatment of dry eye syndorme, and you can also use vitamin A eye drops to help relieve some specific types of eye inflammation such as superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis.

    Yes, vitamin a can work on eyes. Vitamin is a vitamin that can found in many fruits, vegetables, eggs, whole milk and butter and so on. It is actually a group of antioxidant compounds that play an important role in vision and help the surface of the eye be effective barriers to bacteria and viruses, reducing the risk of eye infections. Vitamin a eye drops are effective for the treatment of dry eyes and the treatment of a specific type of eye inflammation called superior limbic keratoconjunctivitis. When vitamin a is in combination with other antioxidant vitamins, it also help decrease the risk of macular degeneration. It also appears that a combination of vitamin a and lutein may prolong vision in people suffering from retinitis pigmentosa. So vitamin a is very important for good eyes. But remember take in vitamin a in the recommended amounts, or side effects including irritability, sleepiness, vomiting, diarrhea, headache and vision problems and other problems may appear.
