(KTVI) - During the winter months, the sun can be blinding during the morning and evening rush. Drivers who struggle to see past the bright light may be at risk for a fender bender.

The Original HDVision Visor attaches to a car's sun visor. The "As Seen on TV" product claims to reduce glare of sunlight and headlights while also enhancing color and clarity.

FOX 2/News 11 Maintenance Engineer Dave Hitz tested the product in the daylight. The transparent, brownish tinted visor flips down diffusing the sun's light.

"It kind of eases your eyes up a bit," said Hitz. "You're not squinting as much."

Engineer Amin Hinds took the HDVision Visor for a test drive after sundown. He immediately noticed the visor was too high to really diffuse the headlights which were lower than the visor extended. Even after adjusting his seat so he was sitting higher in the car, he was not impressed.

So is HDVision Visor a deal?

"It did work," said Hitz. "It cut down the glare when we were driving south kind of into the sun and it helped."

But Hinds feels differently.

"It didn't make me say 'Oh, I have to go and get this. I have to go and spend my money.'"
