    I found this forum after finding no informative resources via Google and a provider who wasn't very helpful.

    I recently received a new pair of glasses:

    They are Zeiss GT2 progressive 1.67 High Index with AR coatings, and I have astigmatism.

    Except for the clear vision area near the major reference point, I find that I see "blue light" glare at the edge of any lights, or sharp corners of objects when there is a light source close by illuminating them. For example, the entire edge of a kitchen's fluorescent light will have a bright blue border, or the edge of a window blind will have it during the day.

    I do not have this problem with my old pair of progressives or contacts, nor does it happen when I'm not wearing glasses.

    I had the lab send a new lens, and it has the same issue although the exact location where it exhibits this property is not the same as the first lens.

    Could anyone point me to a resource or provide some insight? Thanks!

    Did your old pair have anti-reflective coating on it? Seems the coating causes this issue.
