Change your choice of glasses and use glasses with clear or yellow lenses to enhance your sight. If this does not help you, you can try to wear a cap under your helmet. A cap will protect your eyes from rain and road dirt.
Always inflate your tires to the recommended minimum pressure printed on the sidewall of the tire to improve your grip in the rain. We actually never tried this before but you definitely feel the difference!
Corners can be very dangerous when the road is wet. Make sure that there is as much as possible weight on the outer pedal as you enter a corner. Furthermore, try to avoid leaning your bike more than your body. Lastly, avoid painted lines whenever possible.
