Howdy,
Does anyone have any experience with these masks (http://diveriteexpress.com/fins/maskseavision.shtml)?

I've seen them online before....but I don't think I've ever seen anyone wearing them.

Perhaps they are just that new to the market...thanks.

Nope not new..I've had the magenta mask for about three years, and the yellow since the beginning of the summer.

I initially bought the magenta only because it fit better then any of the other masks that they had, the color correction thing was just a bonus.. it's pretty good for fairly shallow reef diving, but doesn't really do much below 30-40 feet.

The yellow mask is great for quarry diving. When I first got it the difference was pretty amazing! Things don't seem to blend as they used to, and you can detect subtle differences in shades. (plus it's a comfy mask!)

I just bought a prescription one from Scubatoys. I like it.The skirt is excellent.

Went with the clear glass.The colored lenses seem less versatile and a bit gimmicky

I'd agree with that for the magenta...only effective in certain instances, but the yellow lenses are great at any depth!

So far opinions are 2 for yellow, none against.

Thanks a bunch. It sounds like they may have turned physics (of light) to our advantage this time.

I don't have either color, but I've got several buddies that use the yellow lenses on every dive. I may think about that for my next mask.

I use yellow lenses on my safety goggles when I work...good for low light...I guess the same principles apply underwater.
