Captain Meryl Getline says "This is a safety consideration. In the event it becomes necessary to evacuate the airplane, your eyes are already adjusted. Otherwise, it takes at least several seconds to go from bright light to being able to see in the dark".

yep! basically the lighting on the inside of the aircraft needs to be the same as outside conditions, so that should an emergency evacuation be required, your eyes will adjust straight away, making it much more safer to leave the aircraft, and have clear sight!

They need full power during take off and landing so they will switch all the lights off to get full electricity power for the main components.
