Beta-carotene, the main content of carrots, is maily responsible for improving your vision. The vitamin A forms a purple pigment called rhodopsin the eye needs to see in dim light. Hence, if we dont get adequate vitamin A, it can lead to night blindedness.

Beta-carotene also acts as an anti-oxidant which prevents free radicals responsible for cancer and heart attacks.
