Car Visor Extender: How can they help?
If your eyes seem to be effected by sun glare when driving you are not alone. Millions of drivers across the globe dread that morning drive or that late afternoon commute home. The sun glare can be a very annoying issue when driving but it can also be a potential danger. Every year there are hundreds of stories of people getting into accidents because the sun glare was blinding and one of the drivers could not see properly.
Okay, so you have identified a problem and gotten on the internet. You browse hundreds of articles saying what to do and how to get rid of the glare for good.
So what should I be looking for glare elimination?
The short answer that I would give you would be to look for a nice pair of polarized sunglasses such as Ray Bans, Maui Jim or Oakleys. High quality polarized sunglasses will be able to significantly reduce the amount of sun glare that reaches your eyes.
This is a great option for many people and there is nothing wrong with using this as a solution to your sun glare issues. The one problem that you do have with this option is that it can be very expensive. These brands sell polarized sun glasses for as much as $400 and a decent pair will run you at least $60-$80.
Is there another option?
Perhaps a Car Visor Extender?
If you are looking to reduce glare and your polarized sunglasses are not enough or you do not want to spend the money for a high quality pair of sunglasses you may want to look into a car visor extender. There are, however, some things you need to look out for.
Products such as HD Vision Visor use fictional photos and videos to sway a purchase to a tinted plastic visor. Many of these companies are from China and by the time you use the product a few times, you realize why it was such a cheap purchase in the first place. Many of these visors are made with such cheap plastic and you can tell when looking through it, as it will have a cloudy, hazy look to it. The last thing you want when looking through a lens, especially when driving, is distortion.
The best option you can choose is a polarized car visor extender. The polarization works the same way it does with the top branded sunglasses and it is a fraction of the price. As biased as it may sound, our visor’s here at Glare Guard are hand made and really use the best quality of any of our competitors.
Because there are only 4 polarized film manufacturers in the world we are able to stand out from the rest. We are the only manufacturer outside of Asia & the only ones doing custom jobs. We are able to carefully handcraft every visor & that is why we can firmly state that our polarized visors are the best alternative to sunglasses and night driving glasses on the market. Our Grey Polarized Car Sun Visor has been featured in AAA Magazine.
One of our other competing products is a visor extender that some people seem to like, yet many people seem to have real problems with. This visor costs roughly $7.00 and you honestly get what you pay for. These are somewhat difficult to see through & the plastic is cloudy which greatly effects clarity. These are not polarized so any sun glare that is reduced, comes from the darkened tint taking light away from your field of vision. This “extend-a-visor” in many consumers eyes, is a waste of money.
