Sources of Vitamin A  
Disclaimer: Got the info from Wiki.

A deficiency in Vitamin A results in impaired vision, particularly in night blindedness. So a sufficient amount of Vitamin A has to be taken everyday to ensure normal eyesight. The US RDA for men is 900 micrograms, while for women is 700 micrograms. Aside from supplements, other sources of Vitamin A include:

* liver (beef, pork, chicken, turkey, fish) (6500 μg 722%)

* carrots (835 μg 93%)

* venttani (817 μg 91%)

* Broccoli leaves (800 μg 89%)

* sweet potatoes (709 μg 79%)

* pumpkin (369 μg 41%)
