Default Should I buy another lens?

Hey everyone, so I have a quick question I bought a pair of Dragon DX goggles last season and I like them a lot, I realize they are by no means the best goggles out there but they fit well on me and with my helmet so I want to make sure they are as versatile as possible.
I currently have the following lenses: Amber, Gold Ionized, and Eclipse.

Buy Dragon's best-selling snowboard & ski goggles brands. Best polarized snow goggles and lens for men and women

My question is, I am debating on buying a yellow lens as well because I plan on doing some night riding at some point this season which I have never done before. Granted it's only $20 for the lens, that is money I could spend elsewhere (I'm in college still) so I wanted to know from someone with experience riding in nighttime conditions/under the lights if the amber lens would suffice or should I go ahead and grab the yellow lens or a different color even?

Thanks everyone.

I would say clear or yellow is definitely worth it. 20$ isn't too bad for a lens.

I'd go for the clear one. Unless your resort has some redic lighting, it'll still be pretty dark when you ride.

Thanks everyone, I went with the yellow because it's pretty lit up I would say.

I wear clear at night, red/persimmon for cloudy stormy, and reflective yellow chrome for sunny days. You can ride with any lens if you want, but it is great having the right lens for the conditions.
