Can we purchase prescription lenses from you (not the bifolcals on the website)? A friend really just needs them for close-up focussing - like reading glasses.
Frank L We have lenses available for this mask, but it would only correct for distance, not up close reading. These lenses also do not correct for astigmatism.
Please contact us directly with the Prescription and we can discuss your options.
GERALD L I have purchased full lens prescriptions for this mask from Leisure Pro in the past, but I don't see that option any more. I wouldn't reccommend the bifocal as you do not know that it is in the right place for your focus. It could be worse and conceal your gages in an optical abberration. I have used the inexpensive fexible plastic lenses for this, but then all I need is to un-do the full lens prescription back to zero. These can float out, but generally do not as they are held in place by the vaccum seal left after the water used to place them has evaporated. If they do float out they are cheap to replace. After I knew where they belonged I marked the location and glued them in with crystal clear epoxy, that works much more satisfactorily.
STEPHEN M I never needed to buy the prescription lenses
JASON P If you do not require prescription lenses for everyday (surface) use, then do not buy prescription lenses for your SCUBA mask.
I have perfect 20/20 vision at distance, but need reading glasses for close-up work (including enjoying close-up sea life when I dive).
I have used the standard bifocal lenses for this mask, as well as the standard lenses with stick-on 'cheaters'. Both work equally well.
If you buy prescription lenses for close-up use, then you will not be able to see anything at a distance.
