    If God had meant us to breathe underwater, he would have given us larger bank balances.
    Human beings were invented by water as a means of moving itself from one place to another.

    Another for Axis Optical. Sheffield based company send your mask by post comes back with well bonded reading lenses of whatever dioptre you use for reading glasses usually around +2. in the bottom of mask clear instructions on web site I have had three of these over last 15 years Only one fell out after a few years and refixed by company.
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.

    [pedant] It has a compass built in [/pedant]

    But yeah, I take your point.

    Sucks getting old.

    I am long sighted and use glasses for most things now. I find that underwater I cope better without, as the water offers some correction and I can pull about +1 correction
    without noticing eye strain.

    One day, though....

    I ordered a mask yesterday from http://www.prescription-swimming-gog...ing-masks.html with different bifocal/plain lenses for each eye and they arrived at 07:25 this morning. Very good service and mask seems to fit ok. I will be trying them out next week in the water.

    The big difference with Axis Optical is that you pick your mask first, and then send it in. So you get a great mask and good prescription. Quite a bit more money, though.

    I'm short sighted, I wear daily disposable contact lenses, in my left eye my lens is a reading prescription and the right one is long distance. Works for me,

    I had a trial set of those and had another go last week and found it quite unpleasant. I am sure it works for some folk but it seems I am not one of them. Definitely worth a try to find out whether you are one of the lucky ones.

    Shame. For comfort it is really important to use an optician who is properly able to measure your eye to select the most appropriate "base curve" and "diameter" set for the lens. Also cheap multifocals have low water content and thicker material, the latest and best exceed 80% water content on the lenses' surface and you simply cannot feel them. In my experience all are not equal when it comes to contacts!
