Bad Optics in Front Windshield - 2015 Limited

Anyone else experience this issue? I have had my front windshield replaced twice now with the same issue in the glass. When I view oncoming traffic lights, stop lights, lighted signs, etc...I see what I would call double vision or a ghost image of the lights. Dealership had to get a manufacturer rep in to verify and replace as you can't really take a good picture of the issue. I've seen threads about this with other makes models of cars.

Before you ask; Yes, I've had my eyes checked recently and they are fine.

The 2915's have acoustic glass to help with wind noise. Wonder if that has something to do with it.

Get the glass code off the windshield and hit google. It will tell you the construction.
Most USA vehicles use some variant of laminated, where there are at least two layers with a soft adhesive layer between them. If the refraction isn't matched close enough, you can see a double image.. actually you can see a double image on pretty much all of them, just not enough to really notice.

After the replacement, what did the Jeep rep say about there still being a problem?

Dropped it off at dealership and letting them sort it out. They are first fixing the off center steering wheel and the rough shifting. Valve body replacement... Then well see about the 3rd windshield. Can't believe the amount of issues with it at this point.

3rd windshield...3rd issue. All have the same problem. Kind of at my wits end at this point.
