Rating: Good price for prescription mask
Reviewer: Paul N.
Its difficult to shop for a SCUBA mask online. But the fit of this one worked out pretty well. If youre very nearsighted like I am, dont even bother taking SCUBA lessons without a prescription mask.

Rating: Perfect fit with room to grow!
Reviewer: Valarie B.  -  View all my reviews
I purchased the H2O Alpha 2 mask for my 10 year old daughter. She is 47 & 63 lbs. These are a perfect fit for her with room to grow. These are very well made & I feel like they will last for years to come. I also purchased corrective lenses for these and Scuba.com put them in before shipping (& sent the original clear lenses as well)! She can see like a champ now at the beach! Shes already used these a handful of times and raves everytime about how much she loves them, how comfortable they are and most importantly how she can see clearly! Thanks so much for the quick ordering process and shipping! Oh & she loves the neoprene mask strap wrapper...she loves that it doesnt get stuck in her hair. I would highly recommend these!

Rating: Best Mask Ever
Reviewer: Richard Rehrig
I bought the H2O mask after my wife received hers as a Christmas present from our son, an experienced snorkeler. Her mask had corrective lenses and allowed her to see things in the water she never could see before. This mask fits well, is comfortable, and allows good vision because of its large lenses. I am glad I got this mask.

Rating: Great mask for a guy with glasses and a moustache!
Reviewer: Christine O´Byrne  -  View all my reviews
I wanted to find the perfect mask for my husband, who has a strong lens prescription and also has a moustache. It took a while, but after reading the other reviews about this mask, it was the one I decided to try. I ordered the purge valve version, which only comes with the clear mask, because thats what the guys with moustaches were liking. My husband had never snorkeled before and I wanted him to have a positive experience. This mask did the job perfect! My husband even commented that he could see better with the masks prescription lenses than with his glasses, and joked that he would wear the mask to do his computer work. No leaking to speak of, and if there is a little then the purge valve takes care of it. I decided that I would order one for myself too, only in black with no purge valve and no prescription lenses, since I dont wear glasses and dont have a moustache (yet). I love my mask too!

Rating: I wear glasses and never thought I couldnt afford a DIVE MASK with CORRECTIVE LENSES.
Reviewer: Steve S.  -  View all my reviews
This is by far the best thing Ive done to enjoy diving even more. Im near sighted and just excepted that I couldnt afford a DIVE Mask with CORRECTIVE LENSES, well I was dead wrong! The Mask with lenses only cost $100.00. On my very first dive with my new mask I found out what I was missing on all of my earlier dives. Wow what a difference. See what your missing. If you wear glasses, you deserve to see the underwater world as nature intended. Dont miss out like I did, order your DIVE MASK with Corrective lenses NOW! Call your eye doctor and find out the DIOPTER for each eye and see what you have been missing on your dives!

Rating: This is a decent one for the money
Reviewer: Thayn M.  -  View all my reviews
This is a pretty decent mask for the money. The visibility is good and the purge valve works well. My only complaint would be that the silicone sill is a little thin so it gets a little uncomfortable along my forehead. I might have also had it a little too tight, so who knows.

Rating: Just a wonderful Mask
Reviewer: Richard Benson  -  View all my reviews
Had this mask shipped to our vacation destination of Hawaii. I have a Thin shapped face and always have had trouble getting a good seal. No problems with this mask, great seal and having a purge valve (not that I needed it because I always had a good seal) made this a great buy. Would recommend this mask anytime. Thanks Scuba.com for the fast shipping and great service.

Rating: Alpha 2 Mask #039347 With Lens
Reviewer: patricia r.  -  View all my reviews
This mask is a topnotch product with or without the purger. Mask straps are sturdy and easily adjustable. Mask shape adheres nicely to the face. The mask seal is strong and little if any water seeps in. Additionally, I ordered prescription lenses and I can see everything! Shipment came within 7 days. I am now ready for the wonderful Caribbean snorkeling experience with this mask. Whether ordering on line or talking to the friendly staffers at scuba.com, I have found them to be helpful in their guidance and right on the mark with this mask endorsement. Pat 3

  • guillermo:

    How can I know if the Mask has Témpered glass visor?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The alpha 2 mask has tempered glass and it is also stamped on the lenses. In general it is hard to determine if something has tempered glass. If it is a "glass" lenses on a scuba mask product it's required to be tempered for safety.

  • Kathy:

    My husband wears one contact when he dives, if he wants to order custom lenses, do we use the strength on the contact box? Thanks!

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Used the first number from the scription.

  • Jackie:

    Ive had cervical surgery..... 6 vertebrates fused with rods and screws. Never experienced snorkel, so thats why I am asking. Need to swim without side breathing so Im interested in a snorkel. Do I need a mask to hold snorkel in place or can I use my swimming goggles without a mask? Thank you

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Jackie, Your swimming goggles are not designed to hold onto a snorkel. I can suggest a mask for you. H2O Alpha 2 Scuba Dive Mask web link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-52/027620/H2O-Alpha-2-Scuba-Dive-Mask.html. This will also take optical lens if say down the road if you need to get them.

  • Phil:

    I have near and far vision issues and wear bifocals. What combination of lenses should I get?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Phil, we can do bi-focal, full lens in either a positive or negative number. With the bi-focal lens the bottom 1/3 of lens lens would be what you request. The top 2/3 of the lens will be a standard lens.

  • Kent:

    What is the different between diving mask H20 Alpha purge and Ocean Quest Arctic Clear HD? Can you help us to make a choice? The price for the Ocean Quest Artic Clear HD is just $5 more but the retail price seems to be a bigger difference.

    Bill  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    The Ocean Quest mask has a better lens which is super clear glass.

  • Betsy:

    for the h20 alpha 2, how do i determine the corrective lenses to order? what do i need to look at from my glasses prescription? do you the lenses before shipping? thanks betsy

    Bob  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    You always use the spherical or sphere reading from your optical prescription for the full corrective lenses (or the magnification power only if you are purchasing the bi-focal lenses for gauge readers). This will be typically the first reading on the prescription and for the majority of people will be a negative number (for example -1.50 or -150) The optical prescription can come in increments of .25 or .75 while the scuba mask will only correct in increments of .50. In this case round UP to the next nearest half increment. We install the lenses prior to the masking leaving our facility and always include the original blank lenses with the order in case of a future need to go back to the clear lenses.

  • Mark:

    I work under water often. I am large faced. Farsighted for reading only. (or my arms are getting too short at age 49). My best reader seems to be 1.75. I use 1.5 - 2.0 for surface work. My correction is so near standard the eye doctor says just use readers off the rack. My wish list: 1. Mask with really good integral reader. +1.75 preferred. 2. Larger magnifier area. (I perform mechanical tasks underwater including sometimes assembling small nuts and bolts, etc.) So lifting head all the way up is annoying on small readers. want 1/3 to 1/2 mask reader. 3. I realy like a purge valve for shallow work, but not a deal breaker. 4. Fit a large face, no beard. Had a mask once that used to bang above bridge of nose...hated it. Too tight. How close can I get without totally breaking the piggy bank. I worry about glue-ins, stick ons, etc..... really want decent optical quality.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Mark, the optical lens that you would install in the mask the bi-focal would take up the bottom 1/3 of the lens.

  • john:

    I have an astigmatism can I get lens to correct this? If yes do I send you my prescription?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello John, yes this mask will take optical lens. When you are looking at the mask in the bullet points you will see where you can order the lens with optical corrections.

  • blais:

    will the h2o alpha 2 mask come with optical lenses already ed when i buy the mask plus lenses or will i have to install them myself? thanks!
