I plan to go more night time ski this season. Currently I use a Bolle X-9 OTG with Vermillon color (lens). Is it ok to use it at night? I am thinking of getting a clear lens but couldn't find one fit for glasses. Please share your opinion. Thanks very much!

I have Scott OTG goggles with the night amplifier lens. Bought 'em on Level 9 Sports for $20/pair (a screaming deal) approx. 3 years ago. I work w/in 30 min of Jiminy Peak, which has night skiing, so I ordered somewhere between 10 and 20 pair for me and my co-workers. They work fine for me.
The Scott goggles I have look like this:
but they have a grayish blue frame.
Goggles with clear lenses work fine for night skiing too (as you suggest). I think Scott sells goggles with clear lenses, I saw them last year at our local Play it Again Sports. Not sure they were OTG though.
I have also used my Smith Sensor Mirror lenses for night skiing and was fine with those as well (the "Knowledge" is one of Smith's OTG frames). The Sensor Mirror is an excellent lens for all but the brightest conditions.
I think some people like the Oakley goggles with hi yellow or hi persimmon lenses for low light/night skiing. Haven't used 'em and I don't know the Oakley frames.
Here's a link for some of the Scott's with the Night Amplifier lens... $37
I have added lenses from Pro-lens:
