Great Mask! Bi-Focal - Not so much

    Comments about Mares Corrective Lenses Positive Bi-Focal Diopters for X-Vision & Liquidskin Masks:

    I love the fit of the mask but, The Bi-Focal lenses have a big flaw. The edge of the bi-focal leaves about 1/4 inch gap between the bi-focal and the nose cover. Thus my eyes lined up exactly with the edge of the bi-focal making it even harder to see the gauge. If they could take the bi-focal all the way to the edge this would be the perfect solution for those of us over 40.

      Questions about this item:

      Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
      Gary S  I have a Mares X-Vision mask, black, which I purchased last year with corrective lenses. A 1.5+ on the right and a 3.0+ on the left to see which power works best for my UW photography. Now I'm getting a 3.0+ corrective lens for the right so I can best work with settings on my camera. This Mares X-Vision MID mask will allow me to practice my photography profession underwater as well as I do on dry land. Thank you very much. Gary
      Shopper  What about lenses for myopia?
      GARY S  Myopia or near-sightedness is a condition of the eye where the light that comes in does not directly focus on the retina but in front of it, causing the image that one sees when looking at a distant object to be out of focus, but in focus when looking at a close object. My vision is hyperopia, the opposite of myopia so I need plus value lenses to see close up under water. My prescription land lens is a variable providing suitable corection for distant and near subjects. I have a Mares mask with +2.5 lenses for close vision and I use stick on lenses for the upper part of the vision area not covered by the Mares lens for more distant vision. As an underwater photographer I really need to see well to operate my camera equipment up close and more distant to be able to spot the critters I am in search of to capture images. This combination I have, over several years come to, works well for me. Not perfect as my vision once was in my earlier years, but certainly a workable solution as opposed to total fuzziness. Due to the refraction of vision underwater finding a suitable solution to your particular vision needs it is a somewhat experimental process and will undoubtedly take time to come to a solution that works for you.
