At one stage I had clip on sunglasses to go over my spectacles. I don't know if they were polarised, but worth asking if that's a possibility. It would be a much cheaper option than getting prescription polarised glasses if expense is an issue.

Don't know if these are available in the UK, but in the US there is a brand of over-glasses sunglasses called "Cocoons" that do a pretty good job of filtering light. They make both polarized and non-polarized versions, and they're about $50 each - I have one of each type, polarized for outside, and the non-polarized for inside. However, I'm only wearing them until I can get new contacts and resume wearing my rather sharp Ray-Ban aviator fade out lenses.

Don't know if that helps, but worth at least looking in to.
