Indeed it is, but you shouldn't have to use it really! Just for the odd one or two cars that have either faulsly set lights, or illegal lights. Certainly these days more and more cars make me have to squint.

they also don't work well, unless you are on the highway where there are alot of headlights, as it makes it hard to see nonlighted objects. I also find it screws with my depth perception.

There's those special sunglasses that you can wear at night to reduce glare (Click here for examples) -- those look pretty dangerous though

us individuals that wear glasses are so under represented. One day one of us glasses wearers will become president, and we will pass a law requiring all individuals to wear corrective lenses.
on a more serious note, most of those are geazer size.
on an even more serious note, many vehicles now have side lights that illuminate with the blinker. But I think it would be cool if you could control the direction of your lights either remotely or witht the stearing, would be very helpful on sharp curves.
Edit: it would also increase the safety of bikers and pedestrians in the cross walk of the streat you are turning onto.

It was designed for exactly that purpose. I guess I can't use a tooth-brush to brush my teeth, because I shouldn't have to use it??

I sit in a low car (Plymouth Laser) and have never had issues with headlights behind me, with or without using the rear-view mirror adjustment.

The only time I have to squint is when it's certain types of SUV's when they are right on my A** and they have their high beams on (at a stop), hit's my side view mirrors, don't think anything will fix that. I also don't really squint... squinting is for pussies (JUST kidding!)
