Are Carrots Good for Your Vision?
Chances are, at some point during your childhood, someone told you to eat your carrots because it would help you see further or more clearly. Is that really true, though? If so, how do carrots help your vision?
Like many of these long-held views that link a specific food to your health, there’s actually some truth and a little myth. But read on to find out more.
A GOOD SOURCE OF VITAMIN A AND BETA-CAROTENE
Carrots contribute a huge amount toward your daily requirements for vitamin A, a vitamin essential for eye health. NutritionData shows that a 5 ½-inch long raw carrot (50 grams) provides 167 percent of your daily requirement for vitamin A. Think of it—eat a single carrot and you’ve easily met your vitamin A needs for the day.
Why is vitamin A so important for your eye health? The American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO) explains that vitamin A deficiency prevents your body from producing pigments it needs for the photoreceptors in your retina to function properly. Naturally, this can impact your night vision.
EAT YOUR CARROTS
The truth is, carrots are undeniably good for your eye health. Do you remember all the times your parents told you to “eat your carrots”? They were doing you and your eyes a huge favor. However, don’t expect to eat a bag of carrots and find that what was once blurry comes into sharp focus. Carrots protect your eye health and vision; they don’t improve it.
