Which is the best Vegetable to eat to maintain a clear and good eyesight?

+9 votes
Clear and good eyesight is very important for anyone but in today's world, it is very tough to have a perfectly good eyesight. With the technology in electronics advancing so fast, many people are overly engaged in Televisions, Cell Phones, Computers and all other electronics which does nothing more than harm the eyes. These days, the new generations of young people are mostly wearing glasses or contact lenses. Some of them have to even go for the laser eye surgery because they hate wearing thick glasses or changing contact lenses often. What if there was an alternate way of restoring our eyesight without having to go for the laser eye surgery, and that will be by eating certain vegetables, wouldn't it be wonderful?

The only natural vegetable i can think of that helps in restoring our good vision is the humble carrot. While carrots cannot improve your vision, they are a good source of beta carotene, which is a form of vitamin A. A deficiency in this vitamin can lead to vision problems and eventual blindness. When a person does not consume enough vitamin A, over time, the photoreceptors in the eye begin to deteriorate, disrupting vision. This process can be reversed by restoring the amounts of vitamin A in the system through eating a healthy diet and by taking a daily multivitamin.
