The DGX Contrast Enhancing mask offers the latest in mask lens technology to enhance and clarify your view underwater. This single lens frameless design fits Standard to Wide faces. The contrast enhancing coating is for use in hazy situations. Hunters diving in turbid waters will benefit from these lenses which cause some divers to perceive improved contrast and edge definition. Very popular for spearfishing and lobstering, as well as artifact hunting. Matte black color with matte black silicone skirt. Includes the DGX padded mesh mask bag.

What you see is not what they see: The optical coating technology causes an unexpected effect that the view on the surface from the 'outside looking in' is very different from the 'inside looking out'. From the point of view of others looking at the mask on the diver, they will see a reflection that shifts across the color portions of the spectrum depending on the viewing angle. However, looking from the divers point of view, you no longer perceive these tints (the lenses appear to be clear) and your visual perception benefits from the effect of the optical coating.

Science has documented many psychological and physiological factors affecting the perception of color and there are vast differences in the perception of color by different individuals. This was demonstrated in early 2015 with the Internet debate surrounding the question What Color Is This Dress?. Many divers enjoy the benefits of the optical coatings on these specialized masks, but some divers do not see any difference or even actively dislike the effect of the coatings. If you are one of the latter, Dive Gear Express will cheerfully accept your return.

Optical Coating Masks Are Not "Cool"

Optical coating masks offer some excellent vision benefits for most experienced divers. However, Dive Gear Express does not recommend optical coating masks for use by instructors or divers who may be diving with an inexperienced buddy. Like mirrored sunglasses, the coatings have a reflective quality that can make it difficult for others to see the eyes of the diver. This can produce an intimidating psychological effect causing the wearer to be perceived as more anonymous and less generous. Instructors know that a reassuring demeanor with students improves their learning capacity, and wearing an optical coating mask can be counter productive to teaching entry level scuba students. Entry level scuba students themselves should not wear an optical coating mask because obscuring the eyes makes it more difficult for the instructor to evaluate the diver condition.
