Since I am vision impaired it may be more of a problem for me but in severe lighting conditions I don't think Polarchromic is the best way to go. At least not for me.

The polarchromic lenses go down to 13% light transmission(which is pretty low), how much do you think is necessary for saltwater? Which is what I live next to.
