Choosing the right kind of prescription dive wear is important. While many companies offer this service, it's important to know the differences between them.

SeaVision USA has been in the business for over 30 years but our lab has been in the optical industry for over 50 years. They produce thousands of prescription lenses for How SeaVision lenses differ from our competitorseyeglasses every day for eye care professionals all over the United States. Because of this, you have the best hands on deck when it comes to your custom dive mask prescription lenses.

It's important to know the other options before explaining what makes SeaVision different, so let's start there. Here are some other prescription dive mask options on the market:

  • Press on or stick on lenses: These lenses are helpful for those who need readers to see computers or gauges. However, they do not last very long and there is a possibility to move during your dive. 
  • Contact lenses: This option caters to a wide range of prescriptions but can cause infections or damage to the eye in addition to the possibility of them being lost mid-dive.
  • Corrective drop-in lenses: This is a good place to start with prescription lenses but they do not correct any astigmatism and are only sold in increments of 0.5 Diopter leaving room for inaccuracy.
  • Bonded lenses: These lenses are made to your exact prescription and then bonded to the backside of the glass lens that is in your mask. It is a great option however, it can be unpleasant to look at and look through if not done properly.

Our SeaVision lenses are made just like your everyday glasses. There is no gluing, sticking, or bonding going on here. We don't even stock those products in our supply rooms. But why is this important?

  1. You get your whole prescription throughout the entire lens.
  2. We can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, and even some prism!
  3. Our lenses last a long time. They are high impact, scratch resistant, and don'tSeaVision prescription lenses are the best optical solution for your dive mask or swim goggles require any scrubbing before use.
  4. We use state-of-the-art equipment which means fewer errors and more optical clarity!

You'll find that places that don't have any optical experience will position these on the outer portions of your mask where you cannot see them or even on the whole bottom portion of the lens blocking any other visual needs.
  6. We have the technology to make lenses for our masks and even other branded masks like TUSA & ScubaPro! Check out our approved mask list here.
