Having recently gone digital for underwater, I now seem to have a problem. I have a nifty Canon with a housing, which has a hood for the display. Unfortunately I am stuck trying to look at this damn thing through little teeny tiny gauge readers in my mask. Anyone aware of anything, preferably hard lens, that might be a bit bigger and more suitable? I don't need a prescription mask, as my only problem is about the first two feet.

...or you could go with a non prescription bifocal mask... http://www.divesports.com/mall/xsscuba_mask_fusion2GR.asp

I'm thinking about one of these myself.

Bobber, I got a couple sets of these. 1 for my sunglasses and another for my mask. I think they work great and they come in good range of magnifications.

I'm currently using the stick on optix in my mask, and they are just to darn small. I can't tilt my head back far enough to see the viewscreen through them. I am looking for something that might be hard mounted (last dive trip the boat had soapy water in the bucket for the masks and them little buggers just floated off.) I also have a preference for full face masks so I don't particularly want to change. I think I saw an optometrist out in CA that would do this, but just thought I would float the question. Ideally, something covering the lower half of my mask lense.
