    I've noticed some lenses are multi colored when looking through them such as Prizm Deep Water Polarized. When my (DWP) Flak 2.0 XL's got fogged with condensation, I noticed a perfect square "window" used to achieve a second lens color. The box separates the two lens colors: one tint in your primary field of vision you look through the most and a different color for your peripheral vision.

    Take a look at these pictures, just wanted to share.

    Yeah this is really common

    It happens on Loads of lenses but it’s nothing to worry about

    What is the reason for this??

    Perhaps, but the conspiracy theorist/optical engineer in me needs an explanation.

    I think that it could be where they hold them lens in place to bevel the edges perhaps?

    Can it be some sort of residue of the adhesive that holds the lens in the finishing process???
    Ive never seen this on my lenses...

    Corporate cost cutting. Why apply prism to the entire lens when you can make it smaller?

    I’m glad you made this thread! I've noticed this on some of my sets of lenses and have been curious of its significance, too. Just fog up (breath on it) the inside of the lens to see if it's there. All 3 of my SWPs, both DWPs, a 24k (2 others don’t have it), and a vr28 blue iridium that has an amorphous area rather than the crisp square.
