The reason for the sharp deterioration in vision and “night blindness”

Vitamin A is one of the most important vitamins for vision – it helps the optic nerve and strengthens the eye muscles. Endocrinologist Tatyana Bocharova told RIA Novosti about this.

Lack of this vitamin leads to dry cornea and clogged tear ducts, she said. “This feeling is familiar to everyone who spends a lot of time at the computer. Another unpleasant consequence of vitamin A deficiency is “night blindness”: a phenomenon when in the dark, vision decreases and a person does not catch minimal light, ”the expert said.

Provitamin A is most easily obtained from vegetable juices, but only from freshly squeezed ones. From animal products, it is most in fish oil (19 mg), chicken liver (12 mg per 100 g), beef (8.2 mg), cod liver (4.4 mg), lamb liver (3.6 mg) …

We also recall that in mid-December it became known that American doctors first developed eye drops to combat age-related hyperopia. As the BBC reported, drops called Vuity do not eliminate the cause of the disease, but temporarily relieve its symptoms. However, despite this, many experts found this therapy revolutionary.
