Carrots do have a reputation for that but it's not completely accurate. Carrots can help protect the health of your eyes i.e. prevent you from getting cataracts. But carrots do not actually improve your eyesight.

well this is wat we ve been studyin carrots have the vitamin a Carrots are nutritional heroes, they store a goldmine of nutrients. No other vegetable or fruit contains as much carotene as carrots, which the body converts to vitamin A. This is a truly versatile vegetable and an excellent source of vitamins B and C as well as calcium pectate, an extraordinary pectin fibre that has been found to have cholesterol-lowering properties. The carrot is an herbaceous plant containing about 87% water, rich in mineral salts and vitamins (B,C,D,E). Raw carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A and potassium; they contain vitamin C, vitamin B6, thiamine, folic acid, and magnesium. Cooked carrots are an excellent source of vitamin A, a good source of potassium, and contain vitamin B6, copper, folic acid, and magnesium. The high level of beta-carotene is very important and gives carrots their distinctive orange colour. Orange Carrots contain beta carotene,with some alpha-carotene, both of which are orange pigments. High in Vitamin A essential for well-being, healthy eyes. These carrots originate from Europe and the Middle East. yep they are great

Fresh Carrots - Fresh Carrots
Yes, fresh carrots do improve vision. However, dont fry them or cook them in oil too much. Eat raw carrots or cimply boil them little bit. Eye sight will be perfect.:)

Yes and no. Carrots do contain vitamin A and beta-carotene, both of which are important for healthy vision. And some studies have even shown beta carotene to reduce the incidence of things like cataracts or macular degeneration. But without other sources of vitamin A and beta carotene, you would have to eat huge amounts of carrots to get the amounts necessary for any real benefit.

I'm not sure if carrots improve your vision or not. But my dad says his finger and toe nails are so much better from drinking fresh carrot juice.
