Rating: Good Mask
Reviewer: Michael E.
I am a professional scientific diver and I purchased this prescription mask because of the +1 optics for each eye. I have about 12 hours dive time on it so far and I am able to view my gauges and compass and can read and write well underwater with it. It fits me very well and seems to be of fair quality. This is a low volume mask and many of these seem to have a tendency to hurt at that point on your forehead (between the eyes) where the mask pushes against at depth. I have not yet experienced this with the Tusa Liberator One, though my depths have been less than 60 so far. Overall a good purchase and a mask I would recommend for those seeking a prescription mask. I give it four stars as I have yet to put it through all the diving situations I typically find myself in.

Old mask a bit yellowed but in perfect condition. I had eye surgery and had thrown out the plain glass lenses -3.5 no longer did it for me. Using the plastic case that came with the first mask for the new one which came without a case. Comfortable & fits me well

Rating: Liberator One mask, sound mask, but not as good as the Plus
Reviewer: Richard K.  -  View all my reviews
This is truly an excellent mask, good quality silicon and fits me very well. Typical of TUSA quality in design and materials. Ive had a Tusa Liberator Plus mask for 20+ years and I was looking for that mask. I was told that the Liberator One was the same except for the available colors. Not quite the same actually. I must use prescription lenses. The Liberator One is OK, but more difficult to remove/replace lenses in (for installation and cleaning) and the strap attachment points do not have swivels as on the Plus, a minor point, I think. The frame on the Liberator One is very slightly deeper that the Plus (despite the lack of swivels) and takes up a little more room in the spare mask bag. Other wise, excellent mask

Rating: See the burn
Reviewer: Alexander M.
this mask fits beautifully soft silicone edges, no leaks at all. one problem: couldnt get it to stop fogging at first: not with toothpaste, defogger or spit. wonderful divemasters had to burn off excess (seriously, with matches) silicone twice, carefully avoiding a melt down. it works. all clear now, but be careful! this is a job for a professional! love it now.

Rating: Love my very own RX / prescription Snorkeling Mask
Reviewer: Kim B.
I wear glasses and am very new to snorkeling and fell absolutely in love with it after my first try. After 2 further opportunities to go snorkeling since then, I recently decided to invest in an RX mask because its not always easy to find shops that have them for rent whenever Im on vacation. I shopped around a lot on-line but kept coming back to scuba.com. I spoke on the phone with a very friendly and knowledgeable staff member who helped me decide which mask to buy (even suggesting one that was less expensive than one I was considering). Not only does the mask fit great, but the stock lenses are of very good quality and very closely match my prescription. Add to all this, I received the mask in record time (though I live in Southern California already). I look forward to doing business with them again and especially to enjoying the wonderful world of snorkeling for the rest of my life.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Almost the same masks, the plus has more color choices.

    Are there sizes for the Mask or its a free-size mask?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Clement, this is sized for medium/large faces (110 lbs+).

  • Meng:

    I want to get a prescription mask for my wife, Im not sure how to do this with her prescription details from the optometrist, this is my first time, I have the chart of her details but it lists distance, sphere cylinder and axis, also near measurements for left and right, how do I enter this for the optical order with this particular mask. Please advise. Thank you in advance.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Meng, when you are ordering lens the number that you need to use is the Sphere number. That is the number you use when you are getting lens for underwater the other numbers do not apply.

  • Gary:

    for the TUSA Liberator 1 mask I use 2.0 readers that can be picked up any where. I have difficulty reading my gauges close up so the gauge reader lens sound perfect. So should I order the 2.0 lens as well? I have always used TUSA masks so I feel certain the mask will work just not sure how to order lens. Right and left or I have seen some recommendations for only one lens. Any advice?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Gary, if you are looking for optical lens for this mask then yes you would order the mask with lens. Then if you wear a +2.0 that would be the power you need to order with the mask.

  • Meng:

    Thanks Darrick for the quick reply, there are two numbers under sphere, one is dist and near, Im assuming we use "dist" for dive mask correct? Thank you again.

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Chuck, yes you can get the mask now and then down the road order the lens that would fit into the mask.

Mask, Snorkel and Fin Care
Q: Should I clean my new mask?
During the production process silicone film can form on the glass lenses which can cause increased fogging. A toothpaste or a very mild abrasive liquid can be used to gently scrub the inside of the lens to remove this silicone layer. This will help to reduce excessive fogging on a new mask.

Q: What causes my mask to fog, is something wrong?
As mentioned above when new it is typically the silicone film from production. However, over time oils and contaminants can build up on the lenses causing a layer on top of the lens that will increase fogging. We recommend cleaning the mask occasionally with a mild liquid soap or detergent to remove this build up. This can help to reduce fogging that may occur with a dirty lens.

Q: How do I stop my mask from fogging?
Aftermarket anti-fog solutions are available and can be used on TUSA masks. Companies such as JAWS, McNett, and 500psi amongst others offer suitable products. Please contact your local TUSA retailer for their recommendation.

Q: I have CrystalView AR/UV lenses in my mask, any additional care required?
Masks such as the M-211 Freedom One PRO and M-28S Geminus PRO are equipped with CrystalView AR/UV lenses. These optical glass lenses are treated with a multi-layer proprietary anti-reflective and ultraviolet coating that is hardened for durability. Although not likely, care should be taken when using these lenses as the coating could possibly be scratched or removed. The coating is on the outside of the mask lens, which allows cleaning and use of an anti-fog solution on the inside without issue. Take care to read the included care and maintenance information with each CrystalView AR/UV equipped mask.

Q: How should I care for my mask, snorkel and fins?
After use rinse your equipment in fresh clean water and dry thoroughly before storing. Take care that any purge valves or snorkel tops are free from sand and debris that can cause leakage. Store in a cool dry place away from heat and sun. Do not dry your equipment in direct UV light for extended periods of time.

Q: Can I get parts for my Mask, Fins or Snorkel?
TUSA offers a variety of straps, buckles and accessories for replacement if a part is broken or damaged. These are available as TUSA CARE genuine accessories and must be purchased from your authorized retailer.
