Smith offers a wide variety of interchangeable lens tints to enhance vision in all light and weather conditions. All Smith Lenses offer 100% protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays. Visible Light Transmission (VLT) is the percentage of available light allowed to reach the eye. Different lens tints offer specific VLT to enhance vision in various light conditions (see Sizing/Info chart for details). All Spherical and Regulator series lenses feature a Carbonic-X outer lens. Utilizing the latest technology, each outer lens is individually molded to offer optimum scratch resistance, increased visual acuity and enhanced contrast sensitivity. A durable inner lens increases visual clarity, and is impregnated with Smith's Fog-X lens coating for awesome anti-fog performance. There is simply no better lens out there. The Carbonic-X lens meets the highest designation—Class 1—optical standards.

I was amazed to find this replacement lens for less than half of what my local ski shop wanted. (They actually suggested that I just replace the goggles completely.) It comes with complete instructions. While they are easy to understand, it takes a little work to get the new lens in.
Smith Anthem Regulator Spherical Replacement Lens
I purchased the replacement lens because I had scratched my original ones. I purchased the Blue Mirror lens, and I have been very pleased. When the light shines directly on them, they are more of a multi color. I still squint a bit in direct light, but they get the job done. Replacing the lens was very simple and it has remained secure with no problems. I have found that when in deep powder and breathing heavy, they tend to fog up. Maybe due to snow piling on the top of the foam surrounding the goggle. They fit my small face very well, even with a helmet.
nice fit, but the coating could be a problem
I recently purchased a pair of Smith Anthem goggles. I haven't had a chance to use them yet. However, it seems like the gloss of the coating on the frame has already peeled off (just a small dot, but they are still unused). I guess I should have listened to Chris P (a previous reviewer). Apart from that, I love the small fit! Great for girls.
I bought the Blue Mirror lenses for sunny days. I was hesitant to buy because the picture on the site didn't look like what I wanted. When I got the lenses they were dark tint with just a sheen of blue when light hits it. They are perfect for bright spring skiing days! I bought the Yellow lenses for flat light days. They too worked perfectly!
