EG2 Goggle Glare?

I bought a pair of Electric EG2s with the gold/orange lense based on their reputation for great peripheral view. Sure enough, they live up to their rep on that end. However, the lense has a horrible glare. I don't know that I'll be able to tolerate it, even in compromise for fantastic peripheral vision. I've never seen mention of glare in all the reviews. Has anyone else noticed this? Right now, I'm more apt to stick with my Smith Prodigy's.

It's an annoying reflective glare. Today is very overcast and it's still alarmingly obvious. Crazy annoying. Absolutely night and day between the EG2s and my Smiths, which have no glare to speak of. If I cup my hand above them to give shade, like the brim of a baseball cap, it goes away. There will be no such luxury on the slopes, though.
