    Can anyone recommend a reasonably-priced prescription mask? Not the little dinky ones about an inch across which you place on the inside of the glass but the full glass prescription type. I know that I am missing out on stuff since I wear bi-focals.

    Mares X-Vision with drop in lenses. I sacrifice a little on the short distances since I don't need glasses to read. I might just check out Doc's link though...

    TUSA Splendive IV - that's what I use. I have -6 lenses on both eyes. The mask is great.

    Seavison is by far the best. Extremely comfortable masks with options on the mask from colored lenses, bifocal, purges, etc.. Well worth the money.

    I have a seavision and a mask from Prescriptiondivemasks. The seavision has small guage readers that are not adequate for doing my photography.
    Prescriptiondivemasks will let you design how and where the bifocals go. Mine are a full "half mask" design. I love it!! I hardly ever use the Seavision anymore. It was a little less than 100.00 which sounds expensive, but it makes all my dives so much better that it was more than worth it.
