As has been said before in this thread, it's got nothing to do with transition lenses (those that go darker when it is bright, in reaction to UV).

It is to do with polarized sunglasses, because LCD screens have a polarizing filter on them, so at a certain angle they will interact with polarizing glasses to effectively block the light.

You can also see this effect if you view your LCD computer monitor with polarized sunglasses on.

SOME transition lenses also have polarization, but certainly not all.
