Masks come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but they can be customized to allow corrective viewing.

You shouldn't be denied the opportunity to see the underwater world because you are near or far sighted. Special prescription lenses can be purchased for a range of masks that can be added to the mask allowing you to view through the mask the same way you would your glasses. You should make sure that you buy the correct lenses for the right snorkeling mask as this is important for comfort and fit.
