Rating: Trident Stick-On Optical Lens for Masks Review - $29.95 - Scuba Gear Customer Reviews
Reviewer: Robert D.
I placed the lens on the mask 48 hours before I left for my scuba trip to the Exumas. The directions for placing the lens on the mask could have been larger and more descriptive for first time users. However, once they dried and were fixed,the lens worked perfectly. Even with defogger, after 24 dives from the Aquacat live aboard for the 5 1/2 days of diving, the lens stayed fixed and performed as advertised. Dive computer and camera information was easy to read with the 2x lens I had purchased. I am very happy with the lens and they will be part of my scuba trip equipment check off list for my next dives.

The lenses are easy to install and hold remarkably well for using no glue! They do take a dive or two to get the final adjustment right, but a good inexpensive alternative to a full fledged bioptic mask.

I purchased a pair of Trident stick on optics at 1.50 for viewing my gauges up close. They work well. I made sure my mask surface was dry and applied them the night before my dives. Warren Dunedin FL

Reviewer: Daniel L.
The stick-on optical lens were easy to install on the face mask, sit low on the lens and you dont notice them until you need to view something up close. The price for them is very reasonable for what you get. I recommend these for an in-expensive cure to being able to read things up close. Daniel Luna

Reviewer: brad knapp  -  View all my reviews
This is a great product and the lens power permits those with "older" eyes to be able to read a computer or compass. The lenses can be difficult to place on masks with narrow glass near the bottom of the mask and you may decide to purchase another mask with rounder glass near the bottom edge so the optical lenses can be placed as low as possible. great product.

I ordered the lenses for a recent dive trip and following suggestions in others comments followed the directions for applying them meticulously. They worked just fine. Had 14 dives and never had to readjust the lenses.

I wear contacts when I dive but I need additional help with close up work like focusing on computer consoles and camera buttons, The lenses can also be transferred to other masks.

Questions and Answers for Trident Stick-On Optical Lens for Masks:


  • Keith:

    Are these curved? I bought some Hydrotacs but they had a slight curve and thus only partially contacted the dive mask lens. I need flat optical lenses so they adhere completely and do not distort my vision.

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Keith, this item is shaped like a half moon. It is flat on the top then curves and makes a half moon.

  • Michael:

    @Darrick, Thanks for responding so quickly but that is not my question. Why order the anti-fog coated lenses if using a commercial anti-fog solution? Again there are two options with and without anti-fog coatings. Im trying to decide which option is necessary? Thanks again!

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Michael, I would go with the anti-fog coating.

  • Paul:

    How do you specify vs normal reading glasses magnification? For instances I buy reading glasses with a magnifcation of 3, what would these be specified as?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Paul, then you would need a +3.0.

  • Thomas:

    Are the Trident Lens the same size as the Dive Optics lens?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Thomas, the trident are going to be a smaller lens but you can get these in .25, and .75 optical. Where as the hard lens only come in the .0, and .5 optical.

  • Douglas:

    I have the Dive Optics and they never stay in place. Do these lens attach the same way or do these have an adhesive backing of some sort?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello, these attach similarly to oil change reminders on your car windshield.

  • Art:

    I flood my mask occasionally. Will these stay on the lens when I clear it or will they float off into the ocean?

    Arthur  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello, the lenses will stay on. After you do a few floods you would want to clean and dry them out and reinstall.

  • Sandy:

    If the prescription is different for each eye, how do I order, do I use the larger maginfication?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Sandy, with the stick on lens you would need to order two different sets. Or you can get a mask that takes optical lens and have the lens in the different diopters for the different sides.

  • gustavo:

    If I use out of the water( +1.50), +1.25 I should buy?

    Darrick  (Certified Scuba Instructor at Scuba.com):

    Hello Gustavo, you would order the same diopter you would use under water.

  • Rene:

    Good day, First, this is not a Trident product by any labelling marked on the product. Although perhaps distributed in the USA by a Trident group company (something not even ever so slightly alluded to on the packaging), it is stated to be actually manufactured under licence by a Belgian company, and distributed (as per the packaging itself) by Neoptx (Florida). Second - Try as I did, and I really did five (5) times and more, they simply do - not - stick to the mask lens. At all. I went on the manufacturer web site and religiously followed instructions, which is a visual presentation of the written instructions set out on the packaging itself. I applied them after washing hands and mask, thoroughly flushed with water, used no de-fog, applied gently and placed in correct position, massaged lightly to squeeze out air pockets, used lint-free fabric to suck out surrounding water and let dry. Once the little remaining water evaporates after patting down (as indicated in the instructions), the surface buckles and warps and simply curls off on its own. Even if I don’t pat down, once the water evaporates, it - again, curls off. I applied no heat to distort the material. It does not stick - at all - like the “oil change” reminder stickers placed on a car windshield (as mentioned in this Q&A blog). Not even close. Suggestions (aside from return & refund) ? Thank You and Kind Regards, Rene
