"The shape of the scuba mask and the silicone skirt on the mask must conform to the shape of your face to provide you with a comfortable fit. Ensuring the silicone skirt is a high-grade, flexible silicone can help to ensure the scuba mask conforms to the shape of your face and the long life of your scuba mask. Some people are allergic to different types of rubber, if you have an allergy to rubber, be sure to choose a silicone scuba mask because silicone is hypoallergenic. Always talk to your scuba diving gear retailer about the alternatives available to you. When trying on scuba masks you will notice the different shapes of the nose pockets. The nose pocket protects and cushions your nose, helps to keep your scuba mask from fogging during a dive and helps you to maintain equalization. Ensure the size and shape of your nose pocket is comfortable; not too tight and not too large. This will improve not only the comfort of your scuba mask, but your ability to purge your mask efficiently. There are increasingly different styles of scuba mask straps on the market. You may like the factory issue strap on your scuba mask or you may want to purchase a separate strap. Scuba mask straps are available in a single strap or a double strap design. The single strap should wrap around the centre of the back of your head. The benefit of the double strap is that you can position the top strap on the upper part of your head and the bottom strap on the lower part of your head to offer extra stability and comfort. Most scuba mask straps are rubber or silicone and fasten with a post-hole belt enclosure. Newer scuba masks offer a slide-lock type enclosure, which allows you to adjust the scuba mask quickly and easily when wearing the mask. Scuba masks are constantly improving. If you wear prescription glasses or contact lenses on a daily basis you can purchase a scuba mask without having to wear your glasses or contact lenses under your mask. Many manufacturers will create custom scuba masks which include your prescription in the front lens. A good sign you have chosen the right scuba mask for your face is when the mask stays on your face comfortably without using the straps to hold it in place. You should try this simple test with each scuba mask you try on for the first time: See our choices for scuba masks 1. Place the scuba mask over your eyes and mouth ensuring the mask is in the correct position. 2. Take a quick, light breath in through your nose and immediately start to breathe through your mouth as if you are scuba diving. This will create a slight suction between the scuba mask and your face. The scuba mask should stay on your face. If you must push the scuba mask against your face, or inhale repeatedly to help the mask stay on your face, the mask is not a good fit. 3. Keep the scuba mask on your face for approximately one minute. This will help you to determine how tight the seal is and how comfortable the mask is on your face. 4. Exhale gently through your nose to release the seal on your scuba mask and remove the mask from your face. There should be no mark on your face from the scuba mask. If there is a red line around your face from the seal of the mask, the seal was too tight or the mask is not the proper size for your face. Try the test a second time. If you still have a red mark on your face after you remove the mask, you need to continue your search for a scuba mask. Remember, a good scuba mask is one that's comfortable, doesn't leak and is easy to use."

It would be very difficult and foolhardy for anybody to make a personal diagnosis over the internet without knowing your particular medical issue. I strongly recommend that you speak to your doctor/specialist direct. It would be terrible to get a false diagnosis from here. On a personal note I do wish you the best of luck.

The inserts would be specifically for your eye prescription and are bonded to the lens. You can even get bifocals done for your mask and also correct for astigmatism. Your specific prescription can be fit into any dive mask that you choose so there is no need to buy a new mask. prescription scuba mask Manufacturers also offer scuba masks with lenses already premade and the same prescription in both eyes. You choose the prescription that fits your needs. Some divers find this adequate to use underwater. The premade prescription mask would obviously be cheaper than custom made scuba diving masks. Personally, I wear contact lenses when I dive and have had no problems (besides losing one after I surfaced and got hit by a wave). I wear the daily soft lenses and don't notice them when I dive. I've never dove with hard contact lenses so I do not know how they would respond to pressure. If you wear lenses, you should consult your eye doctor to see what they recommend in your case before you dive with lenses for the first time. Let them decide whether you would be better off with a prescription scuba mask or diving with contacts. One site I found which seems very professional is www.prescriptiondivemasks.com. They even have a testimonial from Cathy Church, the renowned underwater photographer, on their site so it can't be too shabby.

There are two easy reasons the mask is fogging. First can be the initial film wasn't properly cleaned off. When you get a new mask there is residue on the tempered glass. The easiest way to get it off is using the toothpaste as mentioned above. You dip the mask in the water and then put about a pea sized blob of tooth paste on each lense. (some masks have one large one some are two split.) Rub the toothpaste all around for a few minutes. Rinse and repeat. (it's worth the extra few seconds to do it again. It is the slight abrasiveness in the tooth paste that gets the film off. Second before you dive (or snorkel) apply a pro grade anti fog. or dip. I live in FL and use 500 PSI brand. It works great for me in the warmer water temps. A small bottle is like 6 bucks, but considering what we spend to go dive, or the small amount of time we get to spend on the bottom it is well worth it. Plus you use very much. A local dive shop can give you a good rec on what will work in your area. but 3 - 7 bucks can get you more than enough for 25+ dives.

There is a reason for the difference in price, one is purely for surface observation and the other is able to stand the pressures of deeper water diving... If your going to scuba dive the investment is worth it, don't skimp on safety…

" 1. Use a defogging solution before every dive, even when diving more than once in the same day. This will prevent your scuba mask from fogging during a dive. You can purchase a commercially prepared defogging solution from any reputable scuba diving retailer. Squeeze a drop or two onto the inside lens of your mask and gently rub the solution around to cover the inside completely. Dip your mask briefly into water, swirl the water around the inside of your mask very quickly and empty the water from your mask. A quick rinse will remove any excess defogging solution from the inside of your mask. You do not want to get defogging solution in your eyes, especially while diving, since it can cause stinging and irritation. If you don't want to use a commercially prepared defogging solution you have a defogging solution readily available and it's free, your saliva. Your saliva will prevent your scuba mask from fogging just as well as any commercial defogging solution. The enzymes in your saliva stick to the lens of your mask like a commercial defogging solution and you will never find yourself without a defogger while on a dive. 2. Never lay your scuba mask face-down on any surface. Salt, sand and grit will scratch the lens of your mask. Always place your mask face up when you are not wearing it or if it is not in its hard case. 3. Rinse your scuba mask in clean, freshwater after each dive and dry it thoroughly before storing it in its hard case. After a dive, your mask will be covered in a salty residue and/or dirt. This must be rinsed clean to prevent the silicone on your mask from degrading. Your mask must be completely dry before storing it to ensure the silicone stays clean and odor-free. 4. Always store your scuba mask in its hard case. If your mask did not come with a hard case purchase an after-market hard case. This will protect your mask from dirt and abrasives and protect it while traveling. Always store the case out of direct sunlight. Direct sunlight will break down the silicone after years of exposure. 5. Periodically repeat the toothpaste treatment to keep the lens of your scuba mask clean. A good rinse after each dive helps to keep your mask clean, but to ensure there is no residue or grit left on your scuba mask you must properly clean it on a regular basis."

You should use sheet masks as there are lots of benefits of using it. You would get an idea by looking at the following points:
1. They are ready to use and you would be free from the complex application process.
2. You will get the results in just 20 minutes.
3. Relieves stress
4. You can take Korean sheet mask along with you on your business trips.

who knows what is a sheet mask? seems this is not a repair question on a repair forum

Scuba Diving &... | Answered on Jul 04, 2018


Time plays a very important role in using the sheet masks. You should never leave the sheet mask on your skin for more than 20 minutes and forget about using it overnight. 20 minutes is enough to pass the important ingredients from the skin to your skin. Korean Skincare is known for its reliable beauty products that you could opt for and get a healthy skin.

This is one of the biggest mistakes people usually commit while using sheet mask. People think that there is alot of excess serum in the mask and so they can reuse it. This should not be done. All the dirt and bacteria will get reintroduced to the skin. Choose a quality sheet mask that is able to remove all the dirt and dead cells from your skin. Korean Sheet Mask is one such product that is trusted for its quality.

It's completely upto you how many times to use sheet mask as there is no harm using it as many times as you want. But I would recommend you to use it thrice a week to get better results. There is a wide range of sheet mask available. You need to opt for a quality product that focuses on providing the most efficient results. Just choose one product and you can make use of it while you are cooking, watching television playing mobile games or relaxing. One of my friends recommended me to use Korean Sheet Mask as it provides a natural glow to the face.

If I'm reading this right you have an octopus which is a second emergency regulator for your buddy if he is in trouble. Where the original regulator hooks to the valve that goes on your tank ther should be a blank with a screw in it . This is where the octopus screws in . You will have a rubber o ring in side. Put it on the end of the threads from the octopus hose and insert it into the hole the screw once occupied.. The screw is just there to fill the blanks hole and can be thrown out.
