Although eating carrots cannot restore vision loss or make any structural changes to the eye, it is beneficial for overall vision health.

Carrots are rich in beta-carotene, a carotenoid pigment which is an essential precursor for vitamin A.

Deficiencies in vitamin A are the leading causes of blindness in the developing world.

Lack of vitamin A can also lead to cataracts, macular degeneration, Xerophthalmia (a disease which is characterized by dry eyes, swollen eyelids and corneal ulcers).
