Vitamin A is plays a vital role in maintaining healthy vision, skin growth and integrity, bone formation, immune function, and embryonic development. It is required to produce several structural and functional units in the eyes that regulate different aspects of vision and optical dynamics from day and night vision to recognition of colours. Deficiencies in vitamin A can hamper night vision causing night blindness, lead to eye damage, and in severe cases, lead to complete blindness. Acute or chronic excesses of vitamin A are toxic, cause a variety of symptoms, and sometimes cause birth defects.
