There are two "flavors" with and without fog coating. If using commercial fog solutions is the fog coating necessary?
Hello Michael, if you go to: http://www.scuba.com/video/43/How-to-Prepare-Your-Scuba-Diving-Mask-Like-a-Pro.html that will show you how to prepare your mask.
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, 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!
I got my Rx from optometrist. ....how do I translate all the negative (-.75, -1.0) into diopter to order? Looks like only positive numbers are offered.
i dove in st. thomas earlier this year the vis. was fair but i couldnt see clearly as i wear bifocals full time. i see the lens are for seeing cloeup. i just plan on snorkeling on our next trip so reading close up is not important i need to see 5-20 feet. distant. vision i am looking for a suggestion to try inexpensively. lens etc. thank you
Hello David, no those would not work for you. What I would suggest is getting this: http://www.scuba.com/scuba-gear-32/027490/TUSA-Liberator-One-Mask.html then get optical lens put in this mask to match you prescription and go that route.
If the prescription is different for each eye, how do I order, do I use the larger maginfication?
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
