    Hey all, fist time poster here...I recently got some fire iridium polarized for my Racing Jackets. Never worn this lens before...and I have noticed that it looks like a different tint when looking around all edges of each lens, a bluish-grey look. So I notice when I turn my head or eyes to look.

    Is that normal? And do you get used to it?

    I will hang up an listen...thanks in advance.

    That is normal. Fire is an awesome looking lens, but it can be a pain to wear. Fire is the hardest iridium coating to bake onto the lenses, and they are known to give some people headaches, and produce "ghost" images. Not the most user-friendly lens in my opinion.

    Yeah... My pair of Fire Flak lenses are darker in tint towards the nosebridge...
    I don't really like them and rarely wear them.

    That is normal. The Half Js I sold have these issue. But you won't notice them under a bright sunlight. But my Pit Bull with fire have a perfect tint. Hit or miss I guess.

    Gothca, still debating on returning them. They just look sweet with my black frames and orange icon & thru bolt.

    I've never had a problem with Fire, though I know many have.
    It's a sick looking lens, and I would therefore forgive it for anything.
    :p

    I personally love wearing my fire lenses. What you described is normal.
