Prescription Options

As a manufacturer of specialised optical lenses, Prescription Dive have been able to develop a unique range of premium lenses for dive masks, ideal for higher prescriptions. This technology has enabled us to expand the prescription range and make the lenses thinner which reduces the possibility of lens contact with the temples when diving.  These options are exclusive to Prescription Dive. 

If you have an extreme script you can be assured that we can make most scripts and will probably be able to make yours.  However, in the event of difficulty we will contact you to advise your best options.

 

Gauge Reader Lenses

Prescription Dive makes gauge reader lenses for divers needing near vision correction and are typically used for reading your gauges. Divers involved in underwater photography with reading scripts of +2.50 or less often select gauge readers.

The gauge readers are made from optical crown glass for optimum optics. Glass lenses have the added the advantage of superior abrasion resistance. Astigmatism correction is included at no extra charge. 

Guage Reader Script Range: +2.50 D sphere (sph) max -2.00 cylinder (cyl) on + script

Single Vision Lenses

Prescription Dive makes single vision lenses to suit an astonishingly wide script range including high prism and high cylinder powers. Prescription Dive is happy to work with difficult scripts and there is no additional charge for high powers.

Single Vision lenses are made from optical crown glass for optimum optics and also available in premium lens material to make lenses thinner and more suitable for difficult scripts or for the diver wanting lenses as thin as possible. Very high scripts will need to be made in premium lens material to minimise the potential of edge lens contact with the temple area of the face. Despite pressure equalisation, lens contact with the temple area of the face is highly uncomfortable.

Single Vision Script Range
Crown Glass Script Range:

+7.00 D sphere (sph) max -4.00 cylinder (cyl) on + script
-10.00 D (max sphere (sph) and cylinder (cyl) combined)
Hi Index Glass (1.8) Script Range:
+11.00 D sphere (sph) max -5.00 cylinder (cyl) on + script
-15.00 D (max sphere (sph) and cylinder (cyl) combined)

Bifocal Lenses

Prescription Dive makes these very popular lenses using a 35mm wide bifocal segment.

The bifocal features minimal image jump at the bifocal distance script interface.

The lenses are laminated into the mask with the bifocal segment positioned to minimise image jump.

Bifocal lenses give the diver optimum near and distance correction for all diving activities and are highly recommended by Prescription Dive.

The bifocals lenses are made of crown glass and exhibit maximum abrasion resistance. Premium lens material is unavailable for this lens type at the current time.

D35 Bifocal Script Range:
+7.00 D sphere (sph) max -4.00 cylinder (cyl) on + script
-10.00 D (max sphere (sph) and cylinder (cyl) combined)
(No Hi-Index (1.8) option available)
