How do they see out the bridge window anyway?

The Enterprise's bridge is brightly lit. Extremely brightly lit, as all those lens flares prove. And instead of a viewscreen, they rely on a huge window at the front of the bridge to see out of the ship. But space is dark. How is it they can see anything out the window? Wouldn't all those damn lights just give the window reflective glares, therefore obscuring anything outside and preventing anyone on the bridge seeing it. Now yes, they have sensors and scanners to alert them to anything worth knowing about anyway, but still.
