Try cleaning the lens? I know with my greens a little bit of dust causes that kind of distortion

I have never cleaned a lens before, I'm guessing I need lens cleaning equipment?

Default Re: green laser dot extreme distortion?

Lol I just ordered one of those from ebay for a dollar.

Alternativley you could just get a cue tip/cotton bud and lightly wipe the lens. Or try adding some Isopropyl alcohol or rubbing alcohol.

Take a pic of the lens for us to see

Compressed air also works...

I have 9 bar on tap at work (130 psi.)

But that's a lot more powerful than you will need

@Misanthrop
Unfortunately my compressed air can ran out within 2 weeks. I used it too much I guess on my dusty PC!

So now I showed you the lens, is it compatible for cleaning?

Be very careful when trying to clean the lens on that. Just thought of another way to clean it. Use a micro fibre cloth like the ones used to clean glasses.

I will search for one, I'm sure I have one somewhere!
And thanks for the help thus far

If it is plastic and your going to use an alcohol based cleaner then I'd say no..

Glass is obviously fine... can you tell if it's plastic or glass.

@Misanthrop
It is glass.

After a careful clean, the fibre cloth seems to have more or less done the job?
