Do the lenses come in bi focal?
Hello Steve, this is not an optical lens mask. They do not make this mask with optical lens. If you are looking for an optical lens mask this link: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-53/Masks-Masks-w--Optical-Lenses.html. Those are all the mask we carry that take optical lens.

I am looking for a good quality mask that has a soft flexible skirt. which is better crystal silicone or 100% high quality silicone? I mainly snorkel and the mask I have bought before seem to have less flexible skirts. We snorkeled last November at Xel Ha Park in Mexico and the mask the had had very flexible, almost rubbery skirts. I am looking for a good affordable mask like that.
The photo on the website seems to show a tinted lens. I want a clear lens, but there doesnt seem to be an option box to choose that. And Atomics web page for this item doesnt mention a tinted lens. Whats going on?
Hello Curt that is just the angle the lens is sitting at. This mask has the ARC technology: http://www.scuba.com/video/video-popup.asp?vid=402&keepThis=true&TB_iframe=true&height=400&width=550.
How long dose the mask last
Hello Jimmy, depends on how well you take care of your gear. This mask should last you for years. My current mask I have had for almost 7 years and has over 3000 dives on it and it looks like new. If you have any other questions please feel free to give us a call at 1.800.347.2822.
DOES THE ULTRA CLEAR GLASS AND ARC REQUIRE ANY SPECIAL TREATMENT BEFORE FIRST USE?
The Atomic mask (and all other masks), just needs to have the internal glass surface cleaned. There is a thin layer of silicone that is allied tot he interior glass during manufacturing. Visit the Scuba.com instructional video on how to prepare your mask: http://www.scuba.com/video/43/How-to-Prepare-Your-Scuba-Diving-Mask-Like-a-Pro.html
i got this mask for my husband and now i want one but am wondering if it will fit my face as i am a woman and about 120 lbs? i am digging the idea of great visability but leakage would be a drag. what do you think?
One of the other reviews stated that its not that easy to attach a snorkel to the mask. It was a different mask, but very similar. Am I going to run into any problems attaching a snorkel to those wacky buckles on the side?
Is there a mask out there that you can wear over eye glasses. I have double vision without my glasses and need the prisms in my glasses to see a single vision.
Unfortunately no. You can put lenses into a Oceanreef Full Face Mask with the use of the optic frames. http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-124/028083/Ocean-Reef-Optical-Lenses-Support.html

What makes our New UltraClear Schott Superwite™ glass so special?
Atomic Aquatics revolutionized the dive industry with “UltraClear” lenses. Before UltraClear, all dive mask lenses were made from low-quality float glass with a visible green tint caused by iron particles remaining in the glass after processing. These green iron particles significantly block light transmission through the lens.
All Atomic Aquatics masks utilize a higher quality optical glass that significantly improves underwater vision allowing up to 96% of light transmission-UltraClear glass.
Our NEWEST UltraClear lens in the VENOM dive mask is made by the Schott Glass Company in Germany. The VENOM gives you the highest purity grade UltraClear glass available. That means you get incredible clarity and high light transmission that isn’t available in other masks-even those who claim to be ultra-clear.
