It’s purely a personal choice which type of Diving Mask or Snorkelling mask you feel more comfortable with. For snorkellers with larger or previously broken noses the single lens design may be preferable.

Diving Mask Prescription Lenses

‘Off the shelf’ prescription lenses are available from some manufacturers for their ‘twin lens’ masks although depending on your prescription requirements you may need ‘made to measure’ lenses and twin lens masks are generally considered better for this.

Do you prefer using Single lens of Twin lens masks?
