A dive mask is a diving accessory that allows you to see clearly underwater. They come in many different styles, but they all have one thing in common: they are designed to fit your face securely without fogging up or leaking. If you wear glasses, there are some things to consider before purchasing a dive mask.
Is it safe to wear glasses with dive masks?
You should not wear glasses with dive masks if you have astigmatism. Astigmatism is an eye condition that causes vision to be distorted and blurry.
If you are wearing glasses and do not have astigmatism, then it is safe to wear them while diving with a dive mask. However, it can be difficult because the shape and size of your face may not match that of the frame. You may experience pain or discomfort when wearing your contact lenses it under due to this mismatch between shapes and sizes.
Before trying on different types of dive masks with different size lenses, make sure that there is enough space between those lenses for your eyesight needs:
- For single-lens masks (SLS), look at how far apart they are from each other.
- For dual-lens masks (DSLS), measure the distance across both lens openings.
- For frameless masks (FFM), measure both lens openings together in order to find out if they fit over your head without touching any part of it.
Can I wear glasses with dive mask?
You can wear glasses with a dive mask if the shape and size of your face match that of the dive mask. If you are not diving professionally then you can wear whatever feels comfortable. If you are planning on becoming a professional diver, it is important to choose a mask that fits your face perfectly. This will ensure that all of your needs are met while underwater and that nothing is getting in the way!

The type of diving you are doing will determine whether or not you can wear safety goggles, glasses and a dive mask. If you are diving in very cold water and there is a chance your mask might freeze to your face, then maybe it’s best that you don’t wear any glasses at all. These types of dives require good peripheral vision so that divers can see their buddies if they get separated from them while underwater.
If this sounds like something that may happen during the dive, then it might be better to leave the glasses behind as well. However, if most of what we do when we go underwater involves looking out at an incredible view or watching creatures swim by our face masks then having both goggles on top of our head and corrective lenses inside our eyesight aren’t going to make much difference!
If you wear glasses, it is possible to dive with them. However, you must choose a dive mask that will fit well with your face shape and size. You also need to be very careful when choosing a dive mask because some styles may not work well with glasses on top of their own design elements.
