The color-changing VT eyewear uses LCD to change tints on demand

Light conditions on a ski slope are like the nursery rhyme about the little girl who had a little girl (good when very very good, but when bad…horrid.) It's either so bright you can hardly see, or so dark you can hardly see, with only rare conditions picking up the middle.

Ski goggles and sunglasses help with this by giving eye shade during the bright moments. You can slide them up onto your forehead as things begin to dim. UVEX introduced automatically changing goggles that switched between clear lenses and dark lenses in response to bright or dim light. This lets you ski with full eye protection in twilight while still preventing snowblindness in full day.
