Goggles for day and night?

Hi. New boarder. New to the forums too.

I will be boarding at night and also during the day so I need goggles that will work when it's very bright and dark. I'm not sure if this means I need to get 2 different pairs of goggles or if I can get a single pair with interchangeable lenses. Also, I just read something (not sure how legit it was, though) that certain colors lenses work well in bright and dark conditions. That sounds like the most ideal situation.

Anyway, I wanted to get some input as to what my options are. Also, I'm can't really spend that much on them. Thanks in advance.

ehh i just used a lense with a slight smoke tint, enough to kill the glare but not too much to make it impossible to ride at night.

the best for both conditions would be a permissible lens. (i think thats the word. starts with a p i know). its a yellowish/brownish colored lens. comes with most goggles. its called amber for dragon goggles.
my advice is look into the Dragon DX goggles. They are sweet, i love mine. They come with an silver ionized (mirrored) lens and the amber lens. I only ride with the silver ionized ones because it looks cool. lol. i can see alright in night, but its easier with the amber ones.

midwest I think you're thinking of a Persimmon lense. Personally I prefer something that can be used in both like either a Iridium (Oakley) or sensor (smith). These are probably the best lenses on the market.

I'd also like to ask what kind of day conditions you'll be riding in and where, plus what kind of night conditions?
