but hey, I'm a Floyd fan, so whaddaya gonna do right?  beercheer.gif  ;)

This will definitely help me appreciate the blue dots better.

Remember that it's what you see THROUGH the lens that's important.  The Red mirror turns everything blue/purple - exactly the colors you're trying to avoid when skiing.  Especially in flat/low light!  Whereas the Blue mirror blocks those frequencies, and will help to enhance the little contrast there is better than anything else.  Regardless of the light level, when on the snow, the below is a very solid place to start with your optics:

 

Warm tints = good.  Cool/Grey tints = very very bad.

Speaking only for myself in my decrepitude, I've had very good results in flat light with both lenses above. The trouble with your photo is the top lens is directed toward the sky, not the ground, and neither shows us what happens with a snow surface. Remember as well that eyes (visual acuity, depth perception, light receptors, etc... change with age.

Sorry but I have to disagree,

 

One of my Uvex single lenses that came with my Racer goggles 5 pack is a Gold Light.. Best I have found. for flat conditions

 

I own the Blue Sensor for a pair of Phenoms. I find the UVEX better.

Nor are all eyes calibrated the same. Great you found something that works for you! smile.gif

I'd love to see a pic with the lenses side-by-side so they have the same background (if you have the time and inclination).  Thanks.
