\win-()dō\ n [ME windowe, fr. ON vindauga, fr. vindr wind (akin to OE wind) + auga eye; akin to OE ēage eye] (13c) A globule of incompletely plasticated material in a thermoplastic film, sheet, or molding that is visible when viewed by transmitted light. It is equivalent to Fisheye except that the term window is usually employed to indicate a clear spot in an otherwise colored or opaque material.
