Vitamin A plays an important role in maintaining a good vision of a person. Vegetables that are good source of vitamin A can be eaten liberally or their juice can be taken.

Some of the first signs of vitamin A deficiency include difficulty to adjust the sight in dim light from bright light; for example when you enter in a dark theater or a dark room from bright lighted room.

Carrots can be mixed with other vegetable juices like tomatoes and green leafy vegetables mainly spinach for variety and other nutrients from these vegetables. A combination of fruits and vegetable juice can also be tried if you need variety. Some yellow orange fruits like mango and papaya can also blend well with carrots in juice form and provide the essential nutrients for good vision and total body health. These other mentioned fruits and vegetables like papaya, mango, spinach and tomatoes are also a good source of vitamin A.
