IMPORTANT LENS COMPATIBILITY UPDATE
ATTENTION: This Iris lens fits only with Iris frames from season 2016/17 and newer!
Due to the changes in lens thickness, old frames and lenses are incompatible with the new frames and lenses for Iris and Retina. All new lenses will have a + sign on the lens and all Iris and Retina frames will have a + sign to ensure there is no confusion about whether you have an old or new version.
If you need lenses for 2015 - 2016 and earlier season frames check 2016 Iris Goggle Lenses.

VLT - Visible Light Transmission
VLT is a measurement that specifies the percentage of light coming through the lens and reaching your eyes. A totally clear lens for dark conditions typically have around 90% VLT and a very dark colored lens with mirror for sunny conditions may have down to 10% VLT. Most all round lenses will be found between 30 to 60%.
Anti-fog Protected Single Goggle Lenses
Race skiers demand minimum refraction error, which is why POC's race-specific lenses are made using only a single lens. Single lenses are generally known to have poor anti-fog protection, but the base material and coatings chosen for POC's race goggles are the best available.
POC Double Lens Technology
Double lenses have an outer Polycarbonate lens for durability and penetration resistance and a cellulose propionate inner lens to optimize anti fog properties. All POC lenses have state of the art anti-scratch and anti-fog treatment.
