KNOW MORE ON SCUBA MASK

Author:yonsub Date:2014-10-9 10:03:43

scuba diving masks are different from other kinds of diving  masks. Created specifically for scuba diving, they are made of high quality materials like tempered glass and silicon, materials tough enough to withstand the underwater environment. Snorkeling masks and other masks designed for surface water sports may be made of inferior materials, such as plastic lenses that can fog and scratch easily. Such weak materials could break during a dive. Although scuba masks may work well for snorkeling and other water sports, masks created for surface water sports generally do not work well for diving.

A scuba diving mask must enclose a diver's nose. This feature increases a diver's comfort by allowing him to empty water from a leaky mask and preventing him from getting water up his nose. However, the reason it is absolutely essential that a mask covers a diver's nose is that it enables the diver to equalize the air pressure in the scuba mask as he descends. This prevents the mask from painfully suctioning on to the diver's face, and in an extreme case, sucking his eyeballs out.

Many new divers do not realize that scuba diving masks need to be fit. People have different head and face shapes, so it makes sense that fit is important. No matter what the price or aesthetic value of a mask, do not buy a mask if it does not fit correctly. An improperly fitting mask can leak or press uncomfortably on a diver's face. For this reason, it is important to determine a mask's fit before purchasing.
