Ski goggles can make or break your day on the slopes. Your eyes need protection from outside elements just as much as the rest of your body, and goggles provide that coverage. On the slopes, you’re bound to encounter the intensity of the sun, cold, wind or snow, and even debris.
Here are some things to consider:
Cylindrical (Flat) Lenses are curved horizontally and are vertically flat. The field of view is slightly reduced, and glare cannot be absorbed as well. However, they are less expensive.
Spherical Lenses are curved both vertically and horizontally. They are more expensive but provide you with better peripheral vision, less optical distortion, and more space between your face and the goggles, which ultimately reduces fogging and allows for more airflow.
Polarized Lenses contain a special filter that significantly reduces glare and blocks intense light that reflects off of surfaces like snow and ice. They also enhance visual clarity and optical contrast.
Photochromatic Lenses automatically adjust their tint to the amount of light you encounter. However, they may take a few minutes to adjust. If you are skiing on a day with a frequent mix of sun and clouds, go with a multi-purpose lens color like Amber or Rose.
Mirrored Lenses have a reflective optical coating on the outside that decreases the amount of light passing through the tinted lens. This means that there will be less glare and more clarity in bright conditions.
Interchangeable Lenses are designed to give you optimal performance with quick-changing lens systems.
VLT – Visible Light transmission is the amount of light that passes through the lens and reaches your eyes. It is measured as a percentage, typically between 0% and 100%. The darker the lens, the lower the VLT percentage.
Ski goggle lenses come in dozens of colors and brands to choose from. Here are some very general rules to go by when trying to narrow it down:
