You are thinking of "spherical" lenses.

EpicSnowPlow If this is going to be your one and only goggle I would definitely recommend getting an Amber lens. Scratch resisting coating, anti-fog coating, and dual lenses are a must. Make sure it's comfortable and there are no gaps between you face and the goggle(Gaps usually happen in the nose area). If you wear a helmet make sure your goggle will fit with your helmet (Most goggle will fit anyway). Interchangeable lenses and Polarization are also nice. Otherwise buy the best goggle you can afford cause without anything covering your eyes is like torture running into snow flakes all the time. Also remember to never wipe the inside of your goggle.

dekkert Couple of weeks back I bought this seasons Sinner Scope goggles. They were 40 euros and they had Sintec+ technology... meaning no more changing glasses. They worked absolutely perfectly. I went boarding two weeks ago and we had every sort of weather there is thrown at us. I have to say, the goggles surprised me as sight was always good, no wind, no fog, it was brilliant!
