Maybe saying it's a legal issue is just an easy excuse, and that the real reason is that it's costly to manufacture a range of lenses for each shape of mask, and designs are changing so frequently it hits their profit margin.Hi, I went to my LDS today to order lenses for a new mask as I've recently had a new prescriptin, only to be told that they are not being supplied any more due to...guess what...H&S regs! - apparently in the USA divers have sued their dive shops when they've had problems after buying the wrong lenses for their sight.
Has anyone heard this? The shop rang Mares & Scubapro & got same answer - but the shop hadn't been aware until then!
I'm off to my LDS today and will ask if they can still get stock lenses for masks.
Is there any particular mask you're wanting this for?
I've had no problems getting prescription lenses ordered for fitting to Cressi masks.I really didn't want to have to have lenses stuck onto the inside of my new mask again.............................
I have a very complex prescription and off-the-shelf lenses are no use to me, so I've always had lenses bonded to the inside of my mask. I can highly recommend the place where my LDS has this done.
Due to the lens cost I've bought a spare mask of the same model, so I can transfer the lenses if the old one is damaged beyond repair (my prescription is pretty stable).
