I agree: get the corrective lenses for your mask

youll be glad you did.

i used to dive with contact lenses on. big mistake.

here is my list of priorities of things to buy for scuba, in sequence of purchasing:

swimsuit [unless you are diving at a nudist colony]
mask with corrective lenses
snorkel [i like the "waterless" kind]
scuba boots 5 mm & ScubaPro jet fins [timeless since 1964 ... still the best for me but not suited to everybody]
scuba gloves 3mm
dive computer [check them all before you buy]
lights, accessories, knife or shears, etc.
regulator system [very expensive but nice to own]
wetsuit or drysuit or dive skins [you can rent this for about $20 per day, but its nice to own, once you have all the other stuff above]
B/C [aka BCD]

you never really need to buy tanks, but if you do, research whether L/P steel or H/P steel or aluminum works best for you. And go with DIN valves as well, if youre going to buy tanks, and have your reg converted to DIN if it wasnt DIN to begin with.

Notice: mask w/ prescription lenses is virtually at the top of the list.
