Hi, like probably all migraine sufferers oncoming headlights at night can be a real problem if your driving for more then 10 or 15 minutes. I was wondering what brands of night sunglasses others have tried and how much success they got from them. As I mentioned in my subject, they also need to be able to fit over my prescription glasses.

Thanks!

Welcome,

I gave up on finding this particular product and paid for the darkest lens available in prescription sunglasses.
the color is dark gray.

Hope this helps you.

I have worn my prescription sunglasses for years at night when its raining or if the glare gets to me. It does not make it any darker for whatever reason but sure cuts down on the glare. I discovered by accident one night in the rain how well this works. It was either pull off the road because I couldn't see or try my sun glasses on. I was thrilled that the sun glasses did the trick. Since you are wanting something to fit over glasses go buy a pair & try them out, they are not all that expensive.

I actually already have a pair of daytime, over glasses, polarized sunglasses. I personally found them kind of dark at night but maybe I just need to get used to them. What I tend to do is adjust my mirrors if there is someone behind me and for oncoming traffic I look away to the right when the car gets close so the light doesn't go straight into my retina. Although I will say that those new blueish LED (I assume) headlights are truly evil.
