Ditto.. my husband and I have both been using HydroOptix masks for almost 3 years. The masks have about a -4.5 diopter effect; I normally wear -3.5 contact lenses on land, and my husband -2.5, and our eyes adjust just fine with no lense and the HO masks. In fact, I see better with the "imperfect" correction of the HydroOptix mask than with "perfect" lenses in and a normal flat mask!
The only drawback was that they used to fog something fierce. Over time they've gotten better (or else we've just nailed the hang of cleaning and gel-ing them), plus I think the new versions are made of a slightly different, more fog-resistant material.
Totally worth it if you're nearsighted or willing to wear contacts. Even though people will make fun of your bug-eyes.
Just getting your peripheral vision back underwater is worth any hassle, in my opinion!
