    Some experts say sugar can make the eyesight even worse if you have got myopia. Because sugar will use too much vitamin B1 to metabolize in the body. Vitamin B1 is indispensible to maitain the eyesight. So once there is not enough vitamin B1 in your body, the eyesight will get worse.

    A lot of Vitamin B1 is needed when sugar is metabolizing in your body.When one takes in too much sugar,the Vitamin B1 will be in shortage which may contribute to the myopia.Anyway,it is not good to eat much sugar. It also does no good to your teeth.
