Vitamin A deficiency treatment

Vitamin A deficiency can be treated with vitamin A supplements. The amount of supplements depends upon the age of the child. Vitamin A supplements can reverse night blindness and help the eyes become properly lubricated again. However, vision loss caused by scarring from corneal ulcers cannot be reversed.

International organizations are working to address vitamin A deficiency in at-risk populations, and seek to promote prevention through adequate diet and vitamin supplements.
