Default Problems with visibility - Lens Questions

Okay so Saturday I had to ride for the first time in rainy conditions with my new Dragon Mace goggles. Previous to getting them I've not been using goggles at all (just polarized safety glasses during the day) so I don't know much about the lens and how to handle the rain on them. I ended up not wearing them because I couldn't see through the rain collecting on the outside.

So questions
1 - Is there anything you can do about the water on the outter lens other than just wiping it off?
2 - I do a lot of afternoon & night riding so what kind of lens should I be using other than clear?

Mace has several different lenses and I have no idea what difference they make and I've not found an explanation on their site either. Dragon Goggles Any ideas?

a lot of gloves and jackets come with squeegees for goggles, and that is the only way i know to wipe them thoroughly.

as for afternoon/night riding, i'd probably say a mirrored persimmon lens or something.

Just wipe the water off. Nothing you can do about that.

For afternoon/night riding with Maces, only Yellow ($40) or Clear ($40) will suffice. You could get away with Pink Ionized ($70), but I wouldn't take that chance (lesser VLT).

You could rig up a miniature windshield wiper system.

Something like these, but for goggles.
