I can still see a windscreen chip I had repaired - is this normal?

I've just had a windscreen chip repaired. It was approximately 10mm in diameter. I hoped it would disappear, but I can still see it from inside and outside of the car. Is this acceptable?

It's impossible to perfectly repair a chipped windscreen. Repairers do as well as they can by injecting fluid under heat, but a screen is a laminate and a successful repair cannot be guaranteed.
