Has anyone got a good supplier of optically enhanced, or corrected mask lenses.

Since starting to wear reading glasses for work I find it increasingly difficult to read my computer when diving.

HELP

Cressi makes corrected lenses for myopia in graduations of 0.5 doptries for the Focus mask and the Big Eye.

They also offer bifocal lenses for the Big Eye.

If you do not have extreme astigmatism, you can get the round the expense of having an optician make lenses for you, and just purchase the available ones from Cressi.

Other mask manufacturers do the same, so you should be able to optical lenses for just about any brand on the market. Talk to your dive shop, they should know.

Hope this helps!

Best regards
Rebecca

p.s. Here on Tenerife the Big Eye will cost approx 40 euros, and for each corrected lens anywhere between 25 and 30 euros each.
