Which lens is right for you?
How we perceive the underwater world is largely determined by what we see, and the mask we use is therefore the most important piece of equipment for most, if not all, scuba divers.
Diving in caves is a different experience from snorkelling in tropical seas. Likewise, diving in lower visibility, temperate waters is different from the near unlimited visibility of some blue water locations.
Fourth Element’s lens system in the SCOUT Dive Mask is designed to deliver an optimised experience for different conditions when diving – whether for underwater photographers looking to maximise the light transmission or wreck divers needing to enhance their perception of dimly lit surroundings.
Your dive adventure is unique and taking in the wonders of our underwater world requires a lens tailored specifically to your dive.
Inspired by the gold visors of NASA astronauts, the SHIELD lens provides UV protection and reduces glare, making it ideally suited to tropical and warmer water environments.
UVA and UVB radiation is reflected by the lens, reducing the exposure of the eye to potentially harmful rays.
Maximizing the amount of transmitted light, without any tint from impurities in the glass, the CLARITY is the ideal lens for night divers and photographers. The CLARITY lens is manufactured with the highest level of purity to deliver maximum visual acuity during a dive.
It is well known that UV has a damaging effect on the eye, but it has also been shown that HEV light can interfere with the lutein proteins in the eye and alter them, so filtering out this High Energy radiation can help to preserve optical health.
The CONTRAST lens provides full UVA and UVB protection from harmful ultraviolet which can damage the retina.
