Camera UV film coming off?

Hello everyone, I'm quite new here so forgive me if I missed something. I have been a Z5 Premium owner since November 2015, and it's a really great phone.

However, I have a issue regarding the camera. It seems like there are bubbles on top of the surface of the lens/glass and there's a light blue tint. I have extensively googled this issue and it seems that it's regarding the UV filter/film on top of the camera that is coming off,(https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Xperia-Z2/Camera-lens-film-protection/td-p/841243) I know the thread is about a Z2 but it looks somewhat similar. Is there any suggestion about this issue? I don't think camera quality is affected but I have a feeling that things are reflecting more than normal. I will attach a picture later.

Thanks in advance, have a great day!

So I searched around and apparently some people are using toothpaste to get rid of it? But will the camera lens be prone to scratches due to the removal of this protective UC film? My friend's telling me it won't scratch but I'm afraid to do so.

I used brasso on my z3 when it happened.
If it's not affecting picture quality I'd leave it.

It's really triggering my OCD and it irritates me to see that. Such a nice phone with gloss all over but the camera ruins it. I don't really know if it affects picture quality but pictures look brighter than usual on default settings. Probably the film is reflecting light.

What do you normally wipe your lens with to clean it?

A cloth or my shirt. I haven't really noticed the problem until last month or December.
