I recently found something that works really well, though. I got a new helmet a few weeks ago with an integrated retractable sun visor. I didn't figure I'd use it much because I almost always have a good pair of sunglasses on. However, I find that when I'm riding directly into the sun lowering the visor in front of my sunglasses really works.
+1 My riding glasses are transition lenses (the "performance eyewear" on HD site), so I can go from night riding to riding strait into the sun with one hand

I have a set of sun shields from glare-shields.com geeky and all they do the job. Much like that bent piece of wire we call a paper clip the value of this product is in the results it delivers not what it is. Truth be told; I was taken back with the package contents, but after applying and using the product for a short while, I became a convert. I’m happy to see that the spirit of invention is alive and well in our country.
This product delivers on its promise to block 100% of direct sunlight and glare from above. In combination with a good pair of sunglasses that can handle reflective glare from below the horizon I have taken care of one of the most dangerous conditions while riding or driving. My sunrise and sunset commutes are now a pleasurable; how is it that no one has ever thought of this before.
