Hey @Gnomex26, I hope you're doing well.
It sounds like glue or some other material might be on the actual lens. I'd highly recommend taking the device in to a certified repair shop such as uBreakiFix. You can use this site to find your nearest store: https://www.ubreakifix.com/locations
The technicians from uBreakiFix are trained and certified with Samsung to do these repairs. They will be able to get this fixed up for you.
