Visor doesn't cover windshield corners

The visor on my 06 Essex leaves a 6-8" opening at the corners and more often than not the sun is blasting through the opening.
I'm considering window tint for the top 1 foot of the windshield, anyone have a better solution,

I have the same problem. Sometimes you have to lean over when your driving. Most of the time I just drop them far enough to block the sun. Also put a 1" strip of pipe insulation on the rods to keep the from banging when there up.. You gave me an idea.I have a roll of tint for my Smart car. If it doesn't work, you can take it off. I bought it online for about 25 bucks. Sun's not in your eyes all the time, but when it is it's brutle. Good idea.Thanks

We moved the two small visors outward which helped a little. But then we suplemented the visors with a large visor that covers the entire window and moved the small visors further outward(except a small 2" area on each corner. The large visor(shade) replaces the pleated shades which are no longer required except for a small section in the window corners.
