“HD” Vision Products
The As Seen on TV landscape has seen a spate of products carrying an “HD” label over the past couple of years. In the case of HD Vision Night Vision glasses, the brand’s flagship product “HD Vision Wraparounds” – which advertised heavily back in 2008 – has been joined by its newer “Night Vision” counterpart. Ironcially, the website used in the original product’s advertising, hdwraparounds.com, is no longer in use. That website was originally registered back in 2008. The “official” website now includes the “night” reference in its name.
Our HD Vision Review
Our tests with the HD Vision glasses (both night vision and sunglasses) yielded a consensus that these are indistinguishable from amber-tinted sunglasses, with the night vision variety merely having less tint than the regular sunglasses.
Oddly, neither of these products are advertised to be polarized. Polarization is the industry standard for glare reduction in eye wear. The amber tint does reduce white and blue light, but it does not eliminate glare. One concern we have is that tinted glasses slightly reduce visibility at night in darker settings.
The glasses are large and designed to fit over regular glasses. For those consumers who don’t wear glasses, this gives the HD Vision glasses a somewhat over-sized feel.
And, to point out the obvious, the term “night vision” does not mean that you can see in the dark while wearing these glasses.
Alternatives and Competitors to HD Vision
Aside from the prior incarnation of HD Vision sunglasses, there is another As Seen on TV competitor with a very similar product called Night View NV. Other than design differences, the two products make nearly identical claims. We should also mention the Easy View HD glare blocker for use in cars as another example of such “HD” vision products.
We don’t feel that HD Vision Night Vision glasses live up to the hype of the television advertising. A pair of lightly-tinted polarized sunglasses would easily out-perform HD Vision glasses in glare reduction.
