    Unfortunately no, it is a myth, in fact, it do benefit eye health. As we all know, carrot is a good source of carotenoids, it is rich in vitamin A that is an essential nutrient for keeping eye health, especially for effective night vision. However, it could not improve your overall eyesight, but can prevent loss of night vision and keep the corneas moist and healthy. If you have a deficiency of vitamin A, it can lead to chronic dry eyes and painful erosion of the cornea from excessive dryness. Hence, you should consider it into your daily diet to ensure your eye health.
