I think it depends on the type of polarized lens you have. Oakley are made with more mirror effect and the polarized lenses are primarily made for very bright bluebird days. This makes them sub optimal in low light conditions.
Other makers have different types. I wear swans because they are made locally (I live in Kyoto their factory is in Osaka) and their polarized are not mirrored and designed to work in low light just as well. You see transitions way better than without the polarized. They are pink and see through lenses but polarized.
