Do lenses protection deteriorate over time?

This maybe a stupid question but I have been thinking about it so going to ask.

I am getting back into the game after about 10 years of not playing. I still have my Vios mask from when I used to play. It has been sitting in my attic. Can I use this mask or should I get a new one?

I was not sure if the mask's protection can be reduced with age, are the lenses still safe?

Yes 100% they degrade over time, the poly-carbonate is susceptible to uv light. change them out regardless at least every other season if not every season just for good measure.

YOU CAN NOT BUY NEW EYEBALLS

Lenses should be changed at least once a year. They should also be changed after any close range impacts too. Like Paul said - it’s your Eye Sight!

Thanks guys! Got my mask out of storage today and something has been resting on it for 10 years, so it is a little deformed. Now I am trying to decide do I buy new lenses or a whole new mask.

Yeah, a good idea. Better to buy a newer one to enjoy the game fully.
Select one of the the Top Paintball Masks and have a blast as you are making a come back after almost a decade.
