your contact lens prescription changes?
for 6 months now, I have been drinking approx a pint of vegetable juice a day. This is usually carrots, and sometimes it is mixed with broccoli, celery etc etc
Has anyone else noticed that drinking lots of carrot juice has improved their eyesight causing a change in their glasses/lenses prescription?
I think I know why the authorities insist on an eye examination every year
btw, this isnt specifically a question about juicing :cool:
I drink a pint of juice for breakfast most days.
I have been doing this for over three years.
I always include carrot.
Since eating raw i have noticed an improvement in my eyesight.
I have been high raw since Jan, total raw since feb.
I am blessed with good eyesight, however my vision is sharper and my eyes tire less easily when working on intricate bead work.
I had a spot in my left eye where the vision was slightly distorted.
It has been there for many years.
I only notice it at night, when reading under un natural light.
since eating raw it has cleared!

I do not know about carrots, but I heard many time about raw foods doing this. Also, see:
May I suggest you check out a guy called Dr Wong (www.DrWong.us). More specifically, request a CD of a lecture he gave on the use of potent systemic enzyme supplements (don't confuse these with common digestive enzyme blends) that may improve the flexibility of your eye lens. There is a heck of a lot of stunning information to be learned from this free CD and you can request it here: (www.vitalzym.co.uk/free_cd.php). I was bowled over by some of the content of this lecture!
From a dietary point of view, aside from the phytochemicals known to be beneficial to eyesight (bilberries are a well-known food for supporting eye health, for example), the broader consideration that FRESH raw foods are full of living enzymes is a profound one. Enzymes serve a mind-boggling array of purposes within the body and the clearing of cellular detritus (including scar tissue) is just one of them. By eating an enzyme-rich diet, you take a great deal of strain off the pancreas and thus allow it to better provide systemic enzymes for the good of the body.
BTW, take it easy on the carrot juice - they are chock-full of hybrid sugars which challenge and confuse the liver.
Another interesting product I stumbled across may be found here:

When I first went Raw, I had a detached retina in my left eye, inoperable, (like I would cut into my body even if it WERE operable) and I was blind in that eye, almost completely, I also have extremely poor nearsightedness, I have been legally blind since about age 35 or so, I could still drive up to about 5 years ago with corrective lenses.
I used to wear contacts, as they keep your eyes in the same prescription, much longer than glasses, or so the eye doctors tell us.
about 5 years ago before I went raw, my eyes were pretty bad, couldn't drive at night, and really shouldn't have been driving at all, couldn't read very well, had to use the magnifying glass for everything!!!
then 1 1/2 years ago I wen to the eye doctore, and he gave me a new prescription, very strong, but I could see again,
I went raw, one year ago, 100% and within 3 monhts, my glasses were very blurry, so I started just taking off my glasses in the house, then one day, I noticed that I could see okay, if I held my glasses away from my face, humm, this has never happened before, so I went in and got some older glasses, and guess what, my prescription that was 10 years old, was the one I need now, so I went into the eye doctor and sure enough, he gave me a new NEW prescription the same as it was 10 years ago, and re examined my eyes, now I can see with my blind eye, not perfectly, but I can at least see, and I can read without my glasses, I haven't been able to do that, since I was 7 years old.
So, YES, RAW helps your eyes tremendously, or at least mine.
and I will always eat raw, eat raw, eat raw, raw raw raw !!!
