    Quality products at the right price.

    I've ordered several items from DGX recently, in several orders. I asked if I could order both Ran and Rio reader-masks, +2.0 just like my reading glasses, to keep the best fitting and return the other for credit. No problem.

    The lenses are bonded to the mask, and I couldn't help myself. I had to pick at them to see if they would easily pry up. Nope - durability will only be determined with time, but they look durable (and I couldn't dislodge them with a dental pick).

    As always with DGX, shipping and delivery were prompt (and free). I placed my order on Friday about 1500, got a notification of shipment within the hour. It arrived on Tuesday, FL to MS.

    The Rio mask fit perfectly and is a great solution for an old guy with 20/20 distance vision but unable to see gauges.

    Every time I've ordered from DGX it is been on-time, right stuff, right price, perfect.

    Wicked good mask!

    Sigh...Getting older and finding it tougher to read my gauges for diving here in New England waters. Tried the stick in lenses but they never stayed stuck in and so bought the DGX Rio Gauge Reader mask. Awesome! It is an excellent quality mask, good price, fits well and the readers are just what I needed. I also like the padded sack it comes in. Highly recommended! Thanks!

    Good but not for broad faces

    By

    A quality mask with bonded on magnifying inserts inside. Appears smaller to me than my old Atomic mask and as I have a broad face and some wrinkles etc I just could not get this to seal for any length of time. Frustrating but not DGE's fault. Great price and most likely works fine on normal size heads!

Tek Tip Warning Image WARNING
Don't use toothpaste on modern dive masks, especially those masks that have vision correction lenses. You will either damage the lenses, or needlessly waste toothpaste since most modern toothpaste formulations are not at all abrasive. The same goes for using a lighter to 'burn' the lens to prepare a new mask. Dive Gear Express will not warranty masks that have been treated with abrasives or burned with lighters. Most new dive masks do have mold release agents in the flexible skirt that during storage will migrate to the surface of the lens and cause fogging. These deposits can be safely removed with an extra application of a powerful surfactant like baby shampoo, SeaQuick or SeaDrops defog.

Ordering Vision Correcting Lenses for Dive Masks

To order, consult your eyeglass or contact prescription for the proper amount of spherical power correction, and then select the mask lenses. When reading your prescription, "OS" means your left eye, and "OD" means your right eye. The power of the correction amount is referred to as the "sphere" value expressed in diopters, and we offer vision correction lenses pre-manufactured in a range of diopter values. If your Rx also has "cylinder" and "axis" values, you have an astigmatism and our lenses do not correct for astigmatism.

The sphere strength for the lenses that correct nearsightedness, i.e. for divers that require distance vision correction, are negative values ranging from -1.0 to -8.0 diopter in half diopters. If you have a quarter diopter prescription, then increase to the next higher diopter. For example, if the Rx is -1.75, then increase to -2.0 diopter. If one eye needs no correction, then order a "Plano" lens for that side. Note, if your Rx sphere value is "+" then you are farsighted, also known as presbyopia, and unfortunately we only offer farsighted correction in the form of bifocal lenses.

If you need vision correction in order to read a book or view a phone screen, then you will benefit from using one of our bifocal "gauge reader" masks. A inset at the bottom of each lens adds magnification to see close-up objects, such as gauges, with clarity and yet still provide a means for clear sight at distances. A magnification of +2 diopters works for most people but some masks can be configured with bifocal lenses of +1, +2 or +3 diopters. Conventional wisdom suggests you can estimate + diopter reading value by age: 40 years old -start with a +1, then 50 years old use +2, and 60 years old select +3. However, making your selection based on your personal vision prescription is best.

Finally, all the standard vision correcting masks offered by Dive Gear Express have the correction ground into the lenses themselves. The correction is not aftermarket 'stick on', each of the lenses are ground just like you would expect on a pair of eyeglasses. Please note that the bifocal gauge reader versions are a two layer lens bonded at the factory prior to grinding.
