3 myths about the eyes and vision

1. Myth: Eating carrots will improve your eyes

.Carrots are rich in vitamin A, which is important for a healthy diet. But eating carrots, even by the bushel, will not improve your eyesight.

2. Myth: Reading in the dark will damage your eyes

. Our moms told us this over and over. While reading in low light may cause eye fatigue and, possibly, a headache, it cannot cause permanent damage.

3. Myth: Sitting too close to the TV will hurt your eyes

.There goes mom again! It is not uncommon for kids to sit too close to the TV simply to become more engaged in it, not really to see it better. There is no truth to the myth that our eyes will weaken as a result.

    1. Carrots are full of vitamins, minerals and fibers that are good for your health. But eating too many carrots can bring in too much beta-carotene the molecule responsible for carrots’ bright orange hue and a precursor of vitamin A. This can lead to excess blood carotene which can discolor the skin.
