what lense? it could be the protective plastic crap that comes on it but you take that off any way, but i dont think your that stupid. Or if its the single anti-fog clear lense its that anti fog junk that comes off if you use water

It's the anti-fog stuff. I did the same thing to my clear e-vents lens the first time I used it because I cleaned it with water. I don't know what you're supposed to clean it with, but apparently water isn't it!

That's probably your issue. Pictures might help, too.

the white is where the lenses are peeling and the red line is where it ends.

it looks like the plastic stuff thats put on the lense, i'm not sure. it looks yellow from what i can see and that might be the plastic, i just peeled it off of my avatars. that stuff is kind of a weird yellowish color but i really am not sure. thats my only guess. i hope this helps you.

As stated above me,. it looks like the plastic that they put on the inside of the mask that your suppose to remove before using the mask. How hard is it to see with the mask on? If it's really dark, then you probably forgot to take the plastic off the inside.

Peel it off. That's the protective film on the inside of the lenses.

Funniest thread ever. It happens though, glad it was something simple.

When I read the post at first I thought you tried cleaning it with alcohol or something.
