Carrots and healthy eyes – is it true?

Eating carrots has long been believed to promote eye health and improve your vision, especially at night.

Although true, the connection between carrots and eyesight comes from myth.

During World War II, pilots of the British Royal Air Force first began using radar to target and shoot down enemy aircraft. In an effort to keep this new technology secret, pilots’ visual accuracy—especially at night—was attributed to the consumption of carrots.

This led to a long-running propaganda campaign promoting carrots for better eyesight. This embellished connection between carrot consumption and improved night vision persists to this day.

However, even though this is not entirely true, carrots contain certain compounds that are good for your eyes.

Carrots are a rich source of beta carotene and lutein, which are antioxidants that can help prevent eye damage caused by free radicals.

The vitamin A that carrots contain is needed to make rhodopsin, a red-violet light-sensitive pigment in your eye cells that helps you see at night.
