Why does vitamin D3 intake seem to affect my vision so strongly?

I'm 49. I've never needed corrective lenses. I've been paleo for 3.5 years. Before paleo I was experiencing eyestrain and blurred vision and was ready to go to an ophthalmologist when I changed my diet and started taking D3. My eyesight got a lot better.

Now I take 2000 IU of vitamin D3 per day and try to get frequent exposure to sunlight. The few times I've run out of D3 and skipped the dose for a few days, I've noticed that the eyestrain and blurred vision return.

Any idea why?

Maybe something related to this effect -- http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22217419. "Treated mice showed significant reductions in retinal inflammation and levels of amyloid beta (Aβ) accumulation, which is a hallmark of aging. They also had significant reductions in retinal macrophage numbers and marked shifts in their morphology. These changes were reflected in a significant improvement in visual function"

We know that Vitamin D and its receptor was designed to make perfect use the natural physical and electomagnetic elements of light found on Earth around 600-700 million years ago. The opposite side of the see saw is Vitamin A in the form of retinoic acid used in photo transduction of the eye. They are linked but now how modern biology thinks. Vitamin D connect the two tissues derived from it embryologically the neuroectoderm. Vitamin A controls the photoperiod in the brain. When one can not account for the photoelectric effect well via Vitamin D effects it affects the ability to account for the photoperiod in the brain.

Nature exhibits not simply a higher degree of complexity, but an altogether different level of complexity than science expects. Your whole life has the same shape as a single day you live now. But few people see that elegant simplicity in their own life.

I have two blogs to explain this complexity if you want to read them.
