Safe scuba diving and snorkelling is all about enjoying the underwater experience. But, of equal importance is keeping a close eye on your dive buddy, seeing all that is going on around you and monitoring your levels and gauges. Eyesight deterioration, eye disorders and general poor vision can make some people nervous about diving – don’t let it! With our prescription scuba diving masks, you can scuba dive to your hearts content!
Water naturally magnifies objects by about. 33 percent, and so it may be enough to just use a standard scuba diving mask. But, if you have a more complex eye disorder or worsening condition, particularly if you are a frequent diver, this can be trickier.
When considering the options available for the safest and most enjoyable dive experience, you might want to consider the alternatives to wearing glasses under your mask… which believe it or not is what some people do! The earpiece and/or arm of the glasses. can pierce the mask skirt and will not allow the mask to securely seal around your face. Not ideal at all. Our solution comes in the form of a full prescription scuba diving mask.
Whilst it is perfectly acceptable to wear contact lenses for diving, and some divers prefer this option, there are pros and cons to consider:
The downsides to wearing lenses
Prescription Bonded Lenses
The final and, we believe, by far the best alternative to give you complete precision sight and comfort is our Prescription Scuba Diving Mask.
They are a slightly more costly option in the short-term and for non-frequent divers, we’re not going to cover up that fact. However, the benefits far outweigh the cost when looking longer term and for absolute certainty that, once in the water, you can focus on the dive itself rather than any other obstacle.
Our prescription scuba diving mask lenses are specifically made for three main types of vision and distance requirements - single-vision, bifocals or reading – to your exact prescription.
As they are UV bonded into the mask, there is no risk of them being lost or even dislodged and so do not need replacing. The lenses can be made to suit all types of diving and underwater work, so even the detailed and precise close-up vision needed for photography can be catered for.
There is no cleaning required before you use the mask, as any film on the glass will have been removed through the bonding process.
And the beauty is that you can choose the mask yourself so you will already have confidence that it will be a perfect fit for comfort and practicality.
We believe, a prescription scuba diving mask is the only alternative for those who cannot or choose not to wear contact lenses, and the most cost-effective long-term solution for anyone who needs sight correction at any time.
