What is the vitamin required in order for our bodies to have a good eyesight?
Answer 1:

Many research studies have shown that vitamin C is important for eye health. However, there are many compounds which may be important for your vision as well, including vitamin E, zinc, and flavonoids, which are a large group of biological molecules. Fortunately, all of these compounds are found in fruits and vegetables, which makes it easy to keep your eyes healthy!


Answer 2:

Vitamin A contributes a lot to good eyesight. We know this because many people who don't get any Vitamin A have had vision loss, especially at night. Some good sources for Vitamin A are carrots, spinach and milk.

Remember that all of the organs in your body work together. It's important to have a balanced diet with all vitamins and nutrients.
