Polarized VS Non-polarized

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

No problem reading my Garmin in polarized lenses. Still, I mostly used non-polarized photochromatic lenses these days and ride a lot in the dark or in shifting light conditions. Also, I've found that polarized lenses are often too dark for me while riding. Many sunglasses have too much light blockage for me, which can make it hard to see if the lenses are sweaty and I'm riding in mixed light/shade. This is another benefit of photochromatic lenses for me: they don't get as dark as most traditional sunglasses.

But does it stick to both the horizontal AND vertical parts?
