Scuba diving and snorkeling can be very safe activities; the few accidents that do happen could usually be prevented with better situational awareness (i.e. buddy location). But that awareness is difficult to maintain when so-called panoramic flat diving masks dangerously narrow your field-of-view, submerged, to 71-degrees.

HydroOptix scuba masks give divers superior situational awareness and eye-hand coordination — your time underwater becomes safer, more productive and enjoyable.
Flat Dive Masks Refract Light
The water-to-air interface of a flat mask causes refraction distortions.
The laws of physics limit your underwater field-of-view through any flat window to less than 96°. No flat dive mask can deliver better than 71° and most are limited to 64°.

Double Dome vs. Flat Masks
Expand your total field-of-view almost 5x with a Double-Dome mask
Flat Side-Windows will fragment your view. Instead of seeing your buddy next to you, you are distracted by the view from behind. Now you can see a true-sized panoramic view.
