This can lead to more rapid evaportation of tears. Dry eyes negatively impacts vision. Lowering the computer screen below eye level causes the upper lid to cover more of the eye and reduces tear evaporation. ...Read more

Depends: The basis for this "old wive's tale" is that, accurately, carrots as well as other yellow/orange vegetables and gourds (squash, pumpkin) are fantastic sources of vitamin a, an essential vitamin required for photoreceptor (cone/rod) metabolism. While severe vitamin a deficiency may lead to serious, but generally reversible, vision problems, such as night blindness, most people in developed countries meet more than their daily vitamin a requirements from normal diets and there is no need to consume exorbitant amounts of carrots. In fact, vitamin a excess may be toxic to the liver and some clinical studies have demonstrated that excess vitamin a metabolites may actually be potentially toxic to photoreceptors. ...Read more
