Hi, my partner and I are visiting Egypt in a few weeks and plan to do a lot of snorkling. My partner is looking to purchase a prescription mask (she has a negative prescription), my questions are:

1) which lens are any good, the fitted type or the stick in lenses?

2) does the refraction of the water effect the strengh of the prescription required? ie does it need to be the same as her glasses prescription?

3) any tips or general advice when purchasing a prescription mask for snorkling purposes?

Thanks in advance for your advice
