Visit our Prescription Dive Masks page to view our full range of masks. On each of our masks you have the option to add the lens corrections to your order. Simply choose your favourite, add the lens correction and checkout online.
If you already have a mask we are more than happy to bond prescription lenses to a mask you supply to us - provided the mask has tempered-glass faceplates. This can be a new mask sourced from your local dive-centre or dive-shop, or a mask you are already using. Simply choose the 'Supply Your Own Mask' option from the shop.
Next please send us a copy of your prescription. You can:
Scan / take a photo on your mobile phone and e-mail a copy to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Photocopy and post to Dive Sight LTD, Unit 3, Carlisle House, 99 Carlisle Street East, Sheffield, S4 7QN
Please ensure that your opticians name and address are clearly visible on the prescription.
Please note that due to regulations we are unable to supply prescription masks if you are registered blind and we cannot supply to anyone under 16 years of age. Dive Sight is a professional optical service and we are not here just to sell you a prescription dive mask, we are here to optimise your underwater vision and maximise your diving pleasure. To do this, we need to be absolutely certain that the prescription details you provide are completely accurate and less than two years old.
It is very important that we have your precise prescription details and ophthalmic regulations require us to see a copy of your actual prescription form. Ideally, we need to see this at the time the order is placed.
This can be scanned and e-mailed, or sent as a hard copy. Address details are shown below. This is to safeguard your interest, as your mask will be custom-glazed and cannot be offered for resale. We are required to see a copy of the prescription prior to dispatching your order.
If you do not fully understand the information on your prescription or have any queries relating to your prescription just call us on 0114 3273140 and we can answer any questions you have.
Last, but not least, we will need a very simple measurement, to ensure you get the very best results from your prescription mask. This is the measurement of the distance between your pupils, (your PD) when looking straight ahead.
An accurate PD measurement enables us to position the optical centres of the lenses exactly in-line with the centres of your eyes, to ensure maximum visual comfort. This measurement can be obtained from your optician or you can either use a mirror to take the PD measurement yourself, or get a friend to assist you. The easiest way is to take a piece of firm card and hold it below your eyes and then make a pencil mark directly in line with each pupil and measure the distance between the two marks in millimeters (mm). A typical adult measurement will be between 58 and 70mm.
As eye care professionals Dive Sight ltd will not work to “approximate” values. We will produce your mask to your precise prescription to ensure we achieve the optimum visual acuity, making your vision underwater as good as it is on dry land. All our prescription lenses are made from optical glass, which minimizes distortion, reduces fogging and offers maximum scratch resistance. The corrective lenses are permanently bonded to the inside of the mask faceplates.
If you are unhappy with your purchase, we will take it back and refund the cost of the mask, but we cannot reimburse you for the cost of glazing as the lenses we fit are custom made to your specific prescription, and cannot be reused.
All Dive Sight masks are custom made to each individuals precise prescription, and carefully checked at every stage of production. As such, customers need to allow 28 days for delivery from receipt of initial order. In the event of your chosen mask being out of stock or unsuitable for your prescription, we will contact you and advise on alternatives.
