There is a myth that World War II, the UK developed high-carotene carrots in order to enhance the night vision of their pilots. However, this was done as a disinformation campaign to fool the Germans into thinking this was the reason for bomber losses (instead of the actual reason... British Radar). After the war this myth (carrots improve night vision) persisted. Unless an individual has a vitamin A deficiency, eating huge amounts of carrots will have no effect on vision (night vision or otherwise).
