In brief: No
Carrots are a good source of vitamin a, critical for vision but the usual, even not so good, usa diet contains enough of this so that vitamin a deficiency is rare.
The only reported cases have been in people on bizarre diets like polished rice only. Carrots can be satisfying but will not help night vision unless you are recovering from a bizarre diet.
