For the ODs/progressive wearers, blue glare with new progressives?

I did not get an answer from my optometrist/optician so I'm turning to the hive. Just got a new pair of progressive lenses and find that outside the central clear zone there is a blue shift/glare at the border of lights and corners of illuminated objects. More inside...

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 area 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!
