Do carrots make your eyes better? We have all heard that carrots are good for the eyes, right? Well I dug into the published science to find the truth and this video explains what I found.

The whole belief that carrots are good for the eyes does have some scientific backing, but not for the reason people think. (It mostly has to do with WWII propaganda)
Vitamin A plays a huge role in retinal processing to help you see better in low light situations, however carrots do not technically have vitamin A, carrots have Beta Carotene.
Your body regulates conversion of Beta Carotene to vitamin A and then stores Vitamin A in your liver. The more carrots you eat, the less vitamin A is converted.
I could not find any sources to show a dose dependent relationship of Vitamin A to visual acuity or night vision for normal healthy individuals (those who are not Vitamin A deficient).
Despite all this, there is evidence to show that eating carrots provides antioxidants to your body and can slow down the rate of eye disease.
