    You know vitamin A is the nutrient that I would like strongly recommend to you for the eyes protection. Without or lack of it of human body, the light-sensing ability of eyes cells will be decreased and the adaptation of dark circumstance will be reduced too. The severely lack of vitamin A will lead to night blind. The vitamin A is transferred from carotene which full contained by carrot as well as sweet potatoes. It will bring you plenty vitamin A, that will improve your vision. So congratulations! This is a wonderful habit for you to carry on.
