    Yes, you can eat more carrots to help you keep eye health. In fact, there are many people believe that the beta carotene in carrots can improve eyesight. But i am not sure. Anyway, i know that the beta carotene is converted from Vitamin A as the body is in need of it. And Vitamin A are one of necessary substances of eyes. It can help eyes against cataracts or some aging problems. It also works to help eyes resist stress. So, carrots are good food to eye health.

    Generally speaking, eating carrots can provide you with vitamin A and efficiently help prevent your eye from nyctalopia. Though recently there is no figure showing that the carotene can improve the vision. It indeed does good to one's eyes. Therefore, we suggest: First, animal oil roasted carrots are with lots of vitamin E. Second, the animals' liver and corn are good for eyes. Last, chrysanthemum tea, cassia tea and selfheal tea can be using to clear liver and improve your vision.

    Carotene does can improve your vision. Carotene is fat-soluble antioxidant which has protective effect on many parts of the eye, lung and other parts with many capillaries. The carotene can inhibit peroxidation of cell membranes to remove excess free radicals in the body as well as strengthen mucosal repair ability and regeneration capacity, adding the vitamin that human body really need, preventing the decrease of vision and having effective curative effect on the improvement of night blindness, cataracts and other eye diseases. The carrot contains many carotenes, so you'd better eat more.

    Yes, they can improve your vision. They can improve your sight because of the vitamin A beta-carotene, which is essential for good vision. According to the doctor, beta carotene, when accompanied by vitamin E, vitamin C, zinc and copper, helps reduce the likelihood of advanced damage of macular degeneration by 25 percent. This shows that beta carotene does not harm your eyes, but may have important benefits in preserving your vision.But they aren't the only food which contains this nutrient and there are others that are equally important. And you should follow the doctor's words. Because your doctor can help you determine how much beta carotene you should consume through carrot juice and other foods or supplements each day.
