Sight for Sore Eyes

Why Dive Sight’s prescription dive masks continue to provide a sight for sore eyes.

I’m sorry, but it had to be done at some point! There’s been so many times over the past few months that I’ve been tempted to use a cheesy phrase, as I have written about all things diving. From our prescription dive masks and diving schools, to the best dive sites in the UK and internationally. So, I think I’ve done pretty well to hold off until now!

On a slightly more serious note, though, even throughout the pandemic, you have continued to order prescription lenses for your own scuba diving masks, snorkelling masks and bespoke prescription dive masks supplied by us.

And of course, we have been honoured that you continue to come to us for advice, as well as recommending us more and more often to your friends and diving companions. Oh yes, we notice these things.

So, as we’ve been upgrading some of our website pages recently, I have spent more time than I can usually spare to check our customer feedback.

Now, please don’t think that I don’t notice everything that comes through our social media channels and other messages, because I do.

What I mean is, I stepped away from my usual days’ work and it was as I was reading the comments, recommendations and thank you messages that the subject for this blog sprang to mind – so it’s actually your fault!

Did you know Dive Sight has been providing prescription dive mask lenses for decades?

I still like to think of myself as the same fit, agile teenager I used to be. But having been in this industry for a little longer than I often care to remember, it’s easy to forget the level of detail we have accommodated within some of your individual requirements over the years.

Oh, and the faraway places around the world that our prescription dive masks have been delivered to!

So, taking the time out to truly appreciate your feedback not only keeps us on our toes, but it also takes us back through the years, and reminds us not only of how far we have come in terms of the specialist optical technology we now have at our fingertips, but also of your loyalty to me and Dive Sight.

I’ve been using Dive Sight lenses in my masks for 20 years… the lenses outlast my masks, and my masks last about 10 years … The lenses were an investment, designed to last.”

We are proud to say the experience we have amongst the team, both as divers and optical technicians, means we have become the UK’s leading manufacturer of prescription dive masks.

Youngsters and novice or recreational divers, through to full-time professional diving instructors and marine photographers and cameramen, you will be treated with the same expert care, and knowledge of what diving has to offer.

As an experienced diver myself, here at Dive Sight we understand that you and your dive buddy need to feel safe and secure in your underwater surroundings, to have 100% reliable and clear vision of your computer and tables and be able to capture the very best of every scuba dive.

So, with this in mind, I would love to share just some of our existing customer comments, firstly to show our appreciation for your feedback, and secondly to encourage you to contact us if you are in any doubt as to whether we can improve your underwater vision and create a whole new scuba diving experience for you.

Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what some of our prescription dive masks and prescription lens customers have to say!

By discussing your bespoke dive lens requirements, we can supply and fit them to your own dive mask. We simply ask you to send us your mask, and we do all the rest.

Liam was attentive and really helped me understand what benefits I could get from each type [of] lens.”

Ordered my lenses for fitting into my own mask in January and it was back with me in 3 weeks – great lenses added quality to the next dive holiday.”

As you will see from some of the comments here, we take great pride in the level of service and expertise in ensuring your lenses are fitted securely and effectively. We chuckled when we saw one of our customer comments about no longer needing to make his arm longer or look through squinting eyes! But it’s so true.

How long have you just ‘put up with’ seeing what you can? Making do with whatever adjustments and workarounds you can create? All because you didn’t realise there was a much better alternative available!

You will be amazed to find out how much more you experience from each dive when you finally put aside the discomfort and instability of wearing your contact lenses beneath your dive mask, using temporary lenses, or take the plunge and leave your usual prescription glasses on the boat when you dive for the first time with a professionally manufactured bespoke prescription dive mask.

Just tried my prescription mask for the first time this weekend. Excellent! What a difference reading gauges … went for bifocals, the fit is perfect.”

Great service and a great dive mask with bifocal lenses and a cyl for astigmatism.”

… I have a very high long sighted prescription. Roughly +8 each eye. I also have a slight astigmatism. No issues with lenses, they’re surprisingly thin. Everything is sealed nicely. No complaints from me ...”

They say ‘the proof is in the pudding’ right? Well, as you can see from just these few comments, no eyesight problem is too much of a challenge for us.

Whether you have long-sightedness, short-sightedness, astigmatism, visual deterioration of any type, as another customer says:

“… Great quality and service cannot fault at all. Anyone needing prescription lenses would be mad to go anywhere else. The best, thank you.”

Excellent quality and workmanship, great advice and customer service. I always recommend this company to our dive club members and professional dive team.”

All those years of mucking about with stick in lenses, losing them. We have all been there at some point. Should [have] done this years ago, worth the money ….”

I live outside of the UK; can I still order from Dive Sight?

Absolutely! Not only are we the UK’s leading manufacturer and provider, but we have customers all around the world, living the diving dream!

It would be very short-sighted of us (sorry!) to limit our prescription dive masks to our fellow divers here in the UK. Afterall, we know many of you have experienced some of the most amazing sights around the globe and have taken your time to recommend us to dive buddies you’ve met on your travels.

Whilst not always in control of the postage system, we make sure you are kept up to date with the progress of your mask at our end, and then use the most efficient delivery methods to meet the standards throughout the rest of our business.

I would totally recommend them. I will never use anyone else, even though I live in Cyprus.”

No problem shipping to me on the other side of the planet.”

Treat yourself to ‘a sight for sore eyes’ right away!

The last thing we would want is for you to be the last one saying, “I didn’t realise how much I had been missing during my dives, until I put my new prescription lens mask on. Wish I had done it sooner.”

By contacting one of the team here at Dive Sight today, to talk through any of your queries or specific prescription requirements, you are guaranteed not only the highest quality product, but also the best levels of customer service and attention.

Just imagine, no more listening to the rest of the dive party wax lyrical about the spectacular sights they’ve seen, realising you saw nothing but “blurry images of fish and coral.”

Your entire underwater world will transform, right before your eyes, as our final customer comment proves,

The quality of the lenses are excellent, and the mask has transformed my diving experience … allowing me to go further in my certifications ….”

Go ahead and see for yourself how much investing in bespoke lenses or a prescription dive mask from Dive Sight will benefit every diving experience from now on. Contact us and we promise you’ll never look back!!
