SeeDeep – extraordinary underwater glasses for scuba divers

If you have a vison defect, SeeDeep underwater glasses for scuba divers could be the solution you’ve been waiting for.

SeeDeep underwater glasses for scuba divers are a new product, created by Dutch startup SeeDeep Diving Optics. The people behind it are inventor Jos Groeneveld and designer Bas Millenaart. By joining forces, they have created a new solution for divers with a vison defect and will soon try to put it on the market.

Most divers wouldn’t notice it on a daily basis, but exploring the underwater world with a vision disability can be problematic. Not to mention that it’s also a bit more expensive. All because we need a mask with special and rather expensive lenses.

No one who has ever experienced scuba diving at least once doubts that eyesight is the main sense we rely on underwater. Therefore, any visual defect can not only affect our comfort, but above all safety. After all, seeing dive computer readings correctly, reacting quickly and noticing various details can be extremely crucial.

In many cases, poor water clarity alone can be a problem. And when eyesight problems are added, diving, which should be fun, can turn into something very stressful and dangerous. As a result, some people give up their passion and stop diving because of it.

There are, of course, various solutions available on the market, but none of them are perfect. What is more, most products for divers with a vision defect were developed many years ago. Considering the development of various technologies, it is a wonder that no one has addressed this issue so far and worked out a solution matching the 21st century.

SeeDeep glasses, designed for farsighted divers, are a new product which should soon appear on the market. Unlike other solutions for people with vision problems, they can be used with any mask.

SeeDeep is a set of corrective lenses on an adjustable rubber strap, which is applied to the mask from the outside. Placed in a frame made of anodised aluminium, the lenses are made of durable polycarbonate and are scratch-resistant. Therefore, putting them on or taking them off, as well as the diving itself, do not lead to a decrease in the quality of vision.

The glasses also have a special silicone surface that prevents accidental slipping during the dive. However, underwater, the divers can easily adjust their position to best suit their needs. The manufacturer has prepared a lens version with four variants: +1, +1.5, +2 and +2.5 diopters and is awaiting the granting of a patent.

Production of the new SeeDeep glasses is expected to start in August 2024 and the estimated price per pair is €69. More expensive variants with stainless steel and titanium frames are also planned.

My love for scuba diving started as a 12-year-old in the Canary Islands, at which time I took my first Open Water Diver course. This love for the blue turned into a huge passion that accompanies me to this day. Although blue is hard to come by in the Baltic, no conditions are terrible for me. In this sport, I find peace, patience, courage, focus, and balance. I have recently started to engage in underwater modeling and I am fulfilled with this.
