Oakley G30 lens.  Best lens for every condition I have ever ridden with.  By far my favorite.

The color of the lens does matter and it varies by manufacturer.  Oakley has many different colors which allow different percentages of light through.  Check it out for youself:

different lens tints give better vision in different light conditions.

rose is a good all around lens

yellow or clear is good for night riding

amber is great for sunny days.

every company uses slightly different lens tints. for more information you should check out the website for the goggle brand you are considering they will give you more specific info about the different lenses they offer.

I choose to go with rose/pink for universal use because it beats carrying around a bunch of different lens/goggle.

Lens tints absolutely make a difference.  Though you can get away with using 1 lens every time you ride, I wouldn't suggest it.
 
Anon's visualizer is here:
 
 
and Von Zipper's chart is here at the bottom:
Click on the different lens colors and watch how the Optimal/Moderate/Not Recmd palette changes.

So as you can see above, do your research.  Especially considering how expensive high end goggles are, and the fact that replacement lenses for most goggles are just as expensive as a brand new pair.

Yeah wow, thanks for the info. Ill definitely look into these links. Most likely will go for the rose if its good for universal use.
I usually do an insane amount of research on just about every other piece of snowboarding gear. Just never found myself looking up lens differences on goggles.

I have the rose/pink mirrored lens. It is by far the most universal in my opinion. I had a silver mirrored lens and on cloudy days the snow and the sky just all blended together.

Like the answers above, yes they do. Same with sunglasses for sports. Reds and oranges are great for mt biking, cuts out glare and contrasts really pop. Sucks because sometimes you want the cool mirrored colored ones, but not always the most functional.

Smith has a similar guide to their lenses. The top coat of lense dye does relatively less than the lower levels of mirroring and base filters/tints.

Not sure if there are mirrored clear lens? I would think the mirror adds a tint to it.

Let me beat everyone to the punch:  Go try on the goggles in your local shop.  The frames make a difference in how they fit on your face.  So it's a combination of style and fit.  You want something comfortable that isn't going to pinch your nose.  And you want a big field of view (most people do anyways) but if you wear a helmet make sure the goggles work well with your helmet too.

Hell yes. Mirrors for sunny days and amber or yellow for cloudy day riding. Its pretty nuts the contrast ratio you will notice when you where the correct lens for the correct conditions. Check out SPY Zeds they come with 2 lenses and thats all you will ever need. I own a pair and they are awesome. for the value its worth it

Generally, different lenses will just allow more/less light through. Wouldn't want a dark, mirrored lens while night riding or a clear lens on bluebird days Ouch

You'd need to give an example of 2 goggles for a more detailed response.
 
Generally though, it's all about optics and visual clarity.  In my experience, the biggest price jump you will find is when going from a Cylindrical lens shape ($) to the Spherical lens shape ($$$).  Because more R&D has gone into the spherical shape, and there are claims that it provides better optical quality.
 
Peep this for a quick explanation:

Ah see ive never had a spherical lense, thanks for the video. But ya ive also noticed the same thing, that the only huge price difference is between the flat and bulbed lenses. Otherwise im guessing the frames themselves are just different styling?

Absolutely right!  The frames and straps are all about style. Some like the huge oversized frames, some don't.  Pick one that you like, and then go try it on.

I live in ohio, and 90% of the time its overcast out. So i don't really need too much tint. I just think mirrored or whatever lenses look nice. But i guess I may be asking for too much.

Make sure you bring a back up pair of goggles/lenses for overcast days. You'll want a pair of I/O's or yellow lenses to help see the moguls.

Cry <----This was me in UT last season without a pair of lenses for cloudy days.

Cry <----This is me paying retail at the resort for a pair of goggles with yellow lenses.

They do make a difference but lenses can get very expensive. Some lenses are even more expensive than what you've paid for your goggles. As a matter of fact, the more expensive goggles comes with much better lenses than the cheapos you buy with those amber lenses, which is considered multi-condition lenses, but it's not GOOD for any 1 condition.

Oakley designs take into effect function and then the styling. The outrigger on their goggles serve a purpose, evenly distribute pressure across your face so they don't bind and pinch. Not to mention Oakley lens are impact resistant and offer you zero distortion. Your paying a premium for quality, just like anything else you buy!

Although I agree with the design quip, Oakley goggles just plain don't fit me worth a hoot.  I've tried almost all of them on, just can't win.  Oh well.  I loves me the new Danny Kass signature model (inspiratioin from it came from the Blackfoot Indians in Montana), but he must have a skinny face.  Too bad.  Smith, Scott, and anon seem to fit pretty well for me.
 
Edit: I knew it wouldn't be long before someone was bent up about Mathias' coment.

The VonZipper goggles I have came with Quasar Chrome lenses, which is a 23% VLT.. Will work in all conditions, except for night time/dark.  Will work the best on cloudy or overcast days. And moderate on sunny days or during blizzards. I think if you have only 1 lense or 1 pair of goggles, this seems like the best bet---At least in my case.

^^ Most companies' full line up have 100% UVA & UVB protection... a few even block UVC.
 
It does not matter on the lens tint how much UV gets blocked.  A darker lens only blocks more of the red side of the spectrum (or the "white" visible light), and a lighter tint blocks less of it.
