Versatile, lightweight masks with an exceptional field of vision. Suitable for either snorkeling or diving. Comes with Rx adapter. Mask can be worn with or with the insert. One step strap adjustment system. 100% Hypo-allergenic silicone face skirt with purge valve. Silicone split strap for a secure fit. Tempered glass lens for lasting performance. Side windows provide 180 degree panoramic view.
Prescription adapter allows for fitting of high prescriptions with astigmatism or bifocal or progressive lenses (note bifocals and progressive lenses are not offered online. See FAQ on bifocals and progressives here). Insert requires no special technology to fabricate lenses so your local optical shop should be able to fit this insert with bifocals or progressives lenses if you prefer to do it locally.
See Hilco Leader brand information page for additional details or warranty information.
Most popular prescription lenses listed. Prescription lens prices quoted are for a pair of lenses with prescriptions up to 6.00 diopters cylinder, up to 2.00 diopter cylinder. Higher prescriptions will incur additional power charges. For other lens options such as high index lenses (recommended on powers over 8.00 as thick lenses may push against facial bones), and more, see prescription information page. No prescription limitations. Estimated time frame for prescription: 5 to 7 working days. Anti-fog coating includes heavy duty scratch coating and is recommended on this product. Fog coating adds 3-5 day to processing time.
A: You can do the toothpaste thing. There is no requirement for this. I think this is just one of those trick of the trade so to speak but the manufacturer has no guidelines to do this. I would not put anything on the prescription lens itself as it could scratch or break down the optical coatings. The mask lens is glass so will hold up to all the traditional methods of preventing fog. But the prescription lenses have not been tested for this so I would not try it.
2. Again, the spit is again something that the manufacturer recommends but more something that divers have come to do over the years. I would again not try it on the prescription lenses as you may have some acidity in your saliva that would break down the coatings on the lenses.
Honestly the best option is got get anti-fog drops/sprays that are specifically designed for eyeglass use. They have been tested to work on glasses and safe for their coatings. I don’t know if you purchased this from us at the time or you can try to obtain some from your local eyeglass or sporting goods store. You just want to make sure they say they are safe for eyeglass use. Something for swim goggles is ideal as it is tested to work in a water environment.

Yes, this is the same idea except the insert is designed for this exact masks so it fits better. The mask would be returnable less the cost of the insert which is $20. You may be able to get this to fit another mask but it is a unique shape, not generic shape like the Scuba Spec inserts. Either would work for this prescription. by Jenn
