And also to keep your eye healthy, Carrots?

Is there any optometrists or medical doctors here, who can give me some advice?

not much will help and the carrots thing is an urban myth. Just don't strain them on tiny print and take screen breaks every 30 mins or so.

Vitamin A is good...especially for maintaining night vision. I don't know how much Vitamin A carrots contain, but eating them isn't bad for you...I've been doing it for years.

i wear specs, and the optician recommended lots of greens, you should eat carrots but put them in the juicer first (cant rememeber why) and also you should try and strain your eyes as little as possible

that's not strictly true. maybe it doesn't apply so much in developed countries, but carrots have a rich source of B-carotene. this is converted into Vit A inside the body, which we all know is important for vision.
vit A deficiency is also a leading cause of blindness, so although carrot-eating isn't as effective in the UK as e.g. Africa, it still is helpful for your eyes.

LOL, I do a lot of intense exercise and also eat fatty food like everyday.

I wear contact lenses, sometimes I feel I’m damaging my site by putting them in and taking them out and even something my eye goes red!!! This is the reason why I ask, what fresh food has the most vitamin A.

What is a normal balanced diet? Well, if its eating 5 fruits a day, well that’s hard for me to get as I have to do mission to the supermarket LOL

have you seen an optician lately? there are lots of sensitive contact lenses on the market which won't damage your eyes/make them red.

The "top ten" vitamin A-rich foods: (from a health website)

liver
sweet potatos
carrots
mangoes
spinach
cantaloupe
dried apricots
milk
egg yolks
mozzarella cheese

but don't get 'drunk' on Vit A! it can be bad for you, well if you're intending to get pregnant it may lower your fertility :cool:

I'm not a doctor but perhaps you drink that solution that you're supposed to put contact lenses in? No?
