I believe they are glued on, on this Squadt.
To be able to remove them, I had to dismantle the helmet, remove the leds and push from the inside on the lens using a really small screwdriver. I ruined the lens, though, but my plan was to change the leds and lenses.

If you put something soft over the tip of the screwdriver, you should be able to save the lens. And be careful when you're taking the helmet apart. There are some pretty tiny wires in there that can snap off pretty easily.

If you must remove them (at your own risk Smile) ..carefully take the helmet all the way apart and push the lens out from the inside.

Any tips on how to remove the lens from a frozn gassed? Tried the blow drying method but it didn't work.

I had trouble with my germ born wrong too, the nerf method did not work. Once warm, push at the eyes emplacement on the inside of the helmet, it will slightly bend and you will be able to catch the side of the lenses that are normally getting out (with something thin, your fingers,...).

It works for me.
