The Carrot Eye Chart

The fact that carrots make you see better in the dark has long been disproved as a myth, however it still doesn't stop parents around the world using it to make their children finish their veg.

The myth actually comes back from WW2 when in an attempt to stop the German's finding out about their radar system the Royal Air Force spread a rumor that their pilots success rates were actually down to eating lots of carrots.

Playing on the myth, the photographer Henry Hargreaves and food stylist Nicole Heffron have created this carrot eye chart - a way to test your sight using carrots.
