Re: binocular double vision

You binoculars are probobly out of alignment. Having them realigned costs about $100. If the binoculars aren't expensive, you might want to try this yourself. Basically, one of the front lenses is off-center, and you can rotate it in its mount until the alignment is right. (I.e., it's off center in the right direction.) You will need an optical spanner (which Americans redundantly call a "spanner wrench") or an improvised substitute in order to do this.

Is my bushnell insta vision 7x35 or 10x50- how do I tell ?

The first number is the magnification the second number is the size in millimeters of the objective (large lens) So if you measure the diameter of the front large lens that will give you the size. So a 10x50 means a magnifyng power of 10 and an objective of 50mm.
Now to find out the magnification if you don't know what it is. Measure the front lens. Then if you look through the eyepiece lens while holding it away from you you will see that there is in each a small circle of light. That it what is known as the exit pupil. It lines up with the pupil of your eyes when you have the binoculars pressed up against your eyes. Now measure the diameter of the exit pupil in millimeters. It will only be a small number.

To work out the magnification use this formula. Magnification = Objective size divided by the exit pupil.
So a 10x50 will look like this M = 50 divided by 5....therefore M =10 which is the magnification.

Both the 7x35 and 10x50 will have an exit pupil of 5mm. So if yours is one of these then all you need is the objective (large) lens size.

I am suddenly seeing double images theough my binoculars.

Up close to the eyepieces around the barrels are small screws that you can use to "collaminate" your binocs. The screws aren't meant to be accessed by the owner and most manufacturers cover them up with the material that surrounds the binocs. Of course the binocs in their current state are useless anyhow, so I wouldn't hesitate to peel up the material to look for the screws. If you do it carefully, you can reseat the material anyhow. Then once you locate the small screws, put the binocs on a stand or a table outside. Focus on something far away using one eye. Then using both eyes, you adjust the screw on the other eyepiece while looking through the binocs. Adjust until you get a single image. You can use loctite, or nail polish to "glue" the screw in the final position if it is really loose.

Double vision

The distance between the centers of the eyepieces of your binocular must be the same as the distance between your pupils. This distance is adjusted as follows: 1. Focus on a distant object. 2. Pivot the two halves of your binocular farther or closer apart until you can see a single unobstructed, circular field of view. Make sure to focus on a distant object when you do this because when you focus on a close object you always see two slightly overlapping circular fields. Your binocular may have a scale on the top, between the eyepieces, to help you remember this setting.
