Vitamin A deficiency is extremely uncommon in the Western diet. Your eyesight by eating carrots would only be helped if you were losing vision due to deficiency. This has only been seen in the US in extreme hyperelimination diets.

Nope: Unless you live in the third world with vitamin a deficiency.
