Will eating carrots improve my vision?

ANSWER

Eating carrots will provide you with the small amount of vitamin A needed for good vision, but vitamin A isn't limited to rabbit food; it can also be found in milk, cheese, egg yolk, and liver. So eating more carots won't help improve your vision if you are getting enough vitamin A in your diet.
