About You and Prescription Dive Masks...

My name:
Linda Young

My job function in the company:

Years in business:
22 years

About Prescription Dive Masks:
We put our patient's exact prescription into any existing dive mask. They get the same clear vision as their glasses in the mask they find most comfortable.

Business mission/values:
We strive to provide crystal clear vision, with optical standards much higher than ANSI dictates. We also stand behind our work once completed; providing service, replacements and any help that we can long after your lenses are done.

About You, "The Professional"...

How I was introduced to the professional diving industry:
After 15 years as an optician, I decided to start my own optical company. At that time I was told by Curt Walker that I would be purchasing his existing practice, including a small side business making prescription dive masks, so that he could retire.

What I like best about my job:
Being able to help people enjoy the beauty of the underwater world. Enabling people to dive who would otherwise be barred from the sport by poor vision.

Words of wisdom for those starting their career in the diving industry:
Hard work, perseverance. Find a way to help people and then get to it.

Best way to keep a competitive edge:
Provide excellent customer service, a quality product, and make lasting connections with your patients/customers.

Curt Walker, the founder of Prescription Dive Masks and longtime family friend.
