Default Smith Lenses - No UV Protection?

I have a pair of Smith I/O goggles, and looking online, they say nothing about UV protection. Does anybody know about this? Seems like they don't offer any, at least as far as I can see, which makes me pretty concerned. Thanks!

I don't know for certain, but I'd be surprised if they did not have UV protection. Even my clear lens from VZ provide 100% UV protection.

Right? But every other goggle manufacturer's website I've been to has mentioned UV protection (including VZ) but there's absolutely no mention on Smith's website.

I'm pretty sure there was a sticker on the actual lenses, but I don't remember. Anyway, according to the specs tab on REI, it's 100% UV protection:

There's no way a company the size of Smith wouldn't be holding the industry standard of 100% uv protetction
