Does someone know what is the lowest volume mask who has optical lenses?

most masks with optical lenses are for scubadiving and have large internal volume

15 years ago, an optician made my optical mask (futura - scubapro) for 200 euro
which is very much

thanks
bruno

Make your own

Buy some plano concave lenses and glue them inside your mask. To choose the focal length, f = 1 / P, where P is your prescription. So if you are -2D, then f = 1 / (-2) = -0.50m = -50cm.

Glue the flat side of the lens to the inside of the mask.

Lenses

Hi Bruno,

Eric has got the cheapest idea but I bought an abyss mask and
had prescription lenses put in, I believe it is made by Omer and cost me about 80 UK pound.(sorry don't know what that is in euros!)

I've done loads of diving with it - both scuba and free and have had no problems at all, I fully recomend it.
I hope this helps,
