Interestingly enough, all my scuba diving goals were dependent upon getting a prescription dive mask. After that purchase, sky and ocean were the limit.
Every diver has a few goals that he or she wants to attain. Perhaps it is to shark dive in a cage. Even better, perhaps it is to shark dive with the sharks outside a cage. Perhaps it is to shipwreck dive in the Red Sea down to the very famous Thistlegorm wreck with all its trucks and motorcycles still intact. Early on, I realized I’d need a prescription dive mask to see all these great things. I found a great bifocal prescription diving mask made by Tilos called the Hawk Eyes.
I also recently added some expensive underwater camera equipment to my scuba gear equipment so I’d like to photograph this shipwreck, of course. Also, my goal is to photograph a bull-ring of West Coast lobsters. And I’d also like to photograph some Giant Sea Bass. They’re really amazing! There’s been a moratorium on spearing them since 1982 because fishermen were spearing hundreds of of them. Of course they were! People just love killing living things in the great outdoors.
I dove down recently, banged some rocks together and about nine of them swam over. One looked familiar; I had seen his torn tail before. He came right up to my mask! In this case, the mask he came up to was the twin lens metal aluminum scuba dive mask. Unless I am mistaken, the fish seemed very impressed with this mask. In fact, I bought it from a great online dealer that carries a great selection.
I have yet to attain some of my dive goals, such as cage shark diving, but I am sure to do so now that I have the right bifocal dive mask.
