Those are definitely some very old product.  We had some issues with pupil centering but that was fixed about five or six years ago when we created some new tooling.  You can send those back to Tohickon directly and we'll gladly replace them.  You can call us at (800) 441-5983 for return information.  The new eyes are MUCH more consistent!
