My boyfriend heard somewhere that if you wear polarized sunglasses when its raining heavily, it helps you see better. He tried it, and it worked for him. I just put them on once while we were out, and I did notice a difference, but I haven't actually tried driving myself with them. Definitely make sure that your wiper blades are working well, that makes a huge difference, and use the rain-x. We actually got the kind that you put in the washer fluid as well, and that has worked wonders on my car. I too have problems seeing at night, and then add in the rain, and it makes me really nervous to drive. Fortunately I can generally keep from having to drive in the rain, or at night, but sometimes I can't avoid it. Good luck, and definitely be safe.
