I would go for polarised lenses as they cut out glare. If not on a budget then I can highly recommend Serengeti. Mine have photochromic, polarised lenses that work superbly and sharpen everything up even in dull weather.
I think a lot get confused with the Polaroid sunglasses/glasses brand and the type 'polarised', seems to have become accepted - even if incorrect - over here, a bit like Hoover and Tannoy brand names for their products. Maybe got worse ever since Reactolite became Reactions/Transitions/Photochromatic/polarised. Too complicated.What are these Polaroid glasses of which you speak? Polarized is what I think you mean. They cut glare and are great for outdoors and fishing, but not good for driving.
Serengetis are great, as they cut glare and sharpen colors by blocking some of the blue light. But, they’re not inexpensive.
Transitions lenses (photochromatic) are SLOOOOW to respond to the transitions. When you go from light area to dark areas, it takes a while for the lenses to go back to clear, but more importantly they take a while to darken in bright light.
You have one set of eyes, and when they go bad, sometimes even money can’t fix them, so don’t skimp on them.
I now wear prescription progressive Randolphs in the cockpit (5-6 years), but wore Ray Ban Grey lenses for about 20 years. Even if you don’t need prescription lenses, I highly recommend Randolph glasses. I have two pairs...prescription & non-prescription.
Good luck with your decision.
