    Hello,
    I just bought Oakley A Frame with Fire iridium lens.
    The Fire Iridium is orange/yellow on the center, and blue on the outside.
    When i wear it, the vision in the center is very good, but when i look through the outside (more or less where the lens is blue) i see through a pink tint.

    Is it something normal ? Or is it an issue that i should report to the vendor ?

    Thanks,
    Laurent.

    Sounds a little strange to me.

    Thanks for your response,
    Does it sound strange to you because you have a goggle with fire iridium lens and do not have this pink tint, or does it sound strange to you in general ?

    I will try to take a picture from inside the goggle, but i don't know if the render will be any good.
    I have Oakley sunglasses with Fire iridium lens and i don't have the pink tint, but all the surface of the lens is yellow/orange. No part of it is blue, so that may explain it.
    I don't know why the fire iridium goggles are blue on the outside ( although i like that look ).

    Anyway, if someone with a similar lens could tell me if he have this pink tint, that will help me :)

    Thanks

    I have a few Fire Iridium lenses and I am not a fan really because of the variation in colour as you look through different parts of the lens.

    Ok, so i guess this is something normal.

    For information, this is a photo i took from the inside of the goggle.
    The camera was set to the left of the lens, so that the tint is clearly visible.
    This does not represent what i see when i look in front of me, but instead represent fairly well what i see if i look to the sides.
