In brief: No

While wearing sunglasses on sunny days to protect your eyes is an excellent idea and will protect your eyes from uv rays, it will not actually "improve" your night vision.
Protecting your eyes on sunny days may help with adapting to low light situations, but after 15-30 minutes you vision will have adapted sunglasses or not. Over the long term, not wearing sunglasses can cause some eye damage.

In brief: Sunglasses

Sunglasses can protect your eyes from harmful ultraviolet radiation.
They can slow down cataract progression and may slow down pterygium formation. I am not so sure that sunglasses will help improve your night vision, however.
