Vitamin A

Vitamin A is vitally important for healthy eyes. Processed by the retina, vitamin A is largely responsible for keen color vision and the ability to see in dim lighting.

The most important function of Vitamin A is to ensure healthy vision. Specifically, it can help your eyes adjust to light changes, as well as keep your eyes, skin and mucous membranes moist. Sweet potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, cantaloupe, broccoli, apricots and spinach are all good sources of Vitamin A. Just be sure not to take megadoses of this vitamin, as too much vitamin A can be very toxic to your body.
