Hello Adrian, Thank you for your inquiry! For a BIG GUY, the H2O Alpha 2 Scuba Dive Mask may work, but it is set up for For All faces (60-240 lbs), one of a handful of masks that fits almost all faces. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-52/027620/H2O-Alpha-2-Scuba-Dive-Mask.html I would really recommend the H2O Alpha 4 Scuba Dive Mask because it it meant for for Medium to Large Faces (110 lbs+) or similar size masks. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-52/029355/H2O-Alpha-4-Mask.html If you have any questions or wish to place an order, please call us at 1-800-247-2822 or 949-221-9300.

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
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.

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.
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
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.
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.
