Waterproofing goggle lenses?

I was out downhilling at snowshoe and it started raining so I put my goggles on. The water was kicking up into my goggles a lot and made it really hard to see (and I didn't have my tearoffs with me). Is there any way to waterproof the outside of my goggles so the water won't stick to the lens?

Bike faster so the water streams right off.

I agree.

And ride as much as you can between the drops.

there are these little squeegie rings that fit on your thumb. If your goggle gets all raindroppy you can just give them a swipe with a back of your thumb and the flipper attached to it wipes the water off. It's made for skiiers.
