My eyeglass prescription is -4.25 in one eye and -2.25 in the other. When ordering corrective lenses for this mask, should I round down to -4, -2 or up to -4.5, -2.5? Thanks!
are you able to change the corrective lense your self or do you have to buy a new mask every time your prescription changes the next year
Hello Donnie, no you can change the lens yourself. If you take a look at this video: http://www.scuba.com/video/35/How-to-Install-Optical-Lenses-In-a-Scuba-Diving-Mask.html. That will show you how to remove the current lens and replace them with the new lens.
Bill the retail price for the Ocean Quest is double the price of the H20 Alpha. Is there not a big difference then? I sent email to request when they receive them again.Many thanks for your assistance
Which mask is lower volume? This H2O Alpha 2 Purge Mask or Ocean Quest Arctic Clear High Definition Purge Mask? They look similar in photos...but are they really the same? Thanks!
I bought this mask for my wife . But we cant seem to lock the strap in place . So it keeps loosing up when she snorkels and then gets water up her nose ? What are we doing wrong ? Is a great mask , but she keeps having this problem . Is it supposed to lock ? It looks like it does . But I cant get it to lock . Please advise !! We are in Mexico and the water is beautiful !!! I highly recommend Sin Duda in Xcalak Mexico !!! Bill Kipp
Hello Bill, yes the strap should not come loose like that. If you can take it to the local dive shop and they can help you adjust the strap. There should be to plastic clips on each side and that will hold the strap in place so it does not come loose.
i have big nose will this mask work
Hello John, if you are looking for a mask that has a larger nose pocket take a look at either: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-32/027449/H2O-Tri-View-Frameless-Mask.html or http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-32/127345/Ocean-Quest-Arctic-Clear-High-Definition-Panoramic-Purge-Mask.html.
Will this fit a child? My daughter is a petite 12 yr old. who needs a corrective dive mask/lenses.
I would go with the Atomic subframe. they make different sizes. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-32/029079/Atomic-Ultra-Clear-Subframe-Mask.html
