Looking at this site (SSPEyewear) for some shooting glasses (already have some dark ones with the magnification (for outside) and without magnification for my red-dot-equipped AR.

Before I found SSP I bought some clear (for indoors) glasses that I'd found elsewhere but they fog up terribly...the SSP ones are fog free so I'm going to replace the old ones with some SSP model.

Question: What are folks thoughts on amber lenses? I really just need indoor ones now, so would clear be better?

Copper, orange, yellow/amber and brown lens tints make an environment appear brighter and are commonly used in low-light conditions. These lens tints significantly block blue light and enhance contrast and depth perception making them helpful for overcast, hazy and foggy conditions.

I have a pair of amber glasses that I use for sporting clays. For me, they really help with contrast. The orange clay really stands out.

For indoor or low light situations I feel the yellow lenses make things seem brighter and generally easier to see.

I only use amber for hunting in low light, such as fog and rain. As others have said, they make things lighter.

Indoors I use clear.

My eyesight is still pretty good (no glasses) and I've found the distances and nature of the targets I shoot indoors don't benefit from tinted eyewear. Since I most often wear sunglasses I make a point to wear them often while shooting indoors.
When I "just want to shoot", I wear clear lenses. Follow?

Still have my Decot Hy-Wyd's since about 2006 when I got into competitive skeet shooting and then into precision pistol shooting around 2010 all in the sunny Phoenix, AZ area.

Bronze = skeet/clay targets, outdoor iron sight pistol

Vermillion = outdoor pistol using a red dot sight

Clear = outdoor iron sight pistol and all indoor pistol whether iron or red dot sights

Just what I use.
All of our eyes see something different and our perception of the target.
Just like anything, it takes experimentation.
One answer does not fit all.

Does polarized lenses help with tinted?
Not quite sure what you're asking here, but I will mention a couple of possible downsides to polarized:

1. Polarized gives some people headaches, but not everyone.

2. Polarized can make LCD displays essentially black out or wash out to where you can't read them.

I used to where polarized lenses. They made object clearer during the day. But if you where them with amber or yellow lenses at night will they help much?
And, they do wash out my LCD screen in my 93 Vette, unless I tilt my head a little.
