Carrots won't improve your visual acuity if you have less than perfect vision. For example, a diet of carrots won't give a blind person 20/20 vision. But the vitamins found in the vegetable can help promote overall eye health. Carrots contain beta-carotene, a substance that the body converts to vitamin A, an important nutrient for eye health.

There are some other situations where excessive amounts of Vitamin A can be an issue. For example, the liver is part of our protection from excess Vitamin A. If you have liver damage from other causes then your doctor may suggest more moderation in Vitamin A consumption.

While Vitamin A is important in maintaining healthy eyes, the idea that carrots will noticeably improve vision—nighttime or otherwise—is a complete myth. It’s a misconception that was started on purpose, to explain how the Royal Air Force could be so successful at shooting down enemy bombers during the nighttime raids on the English coast during World War II. The real secret was not carrots, but radar.

Other plants like spinach, kale, and collard greens contain beta-carotene, but additionally contain lutein and zeaxanthin, nutrients that are usually in higher concentrations in the eye than beta-carotene and help protect your eyes from damaging wavelengths of light.
