I'm supposing by eyepiece you mean the rubber or plastic eyecup. The eyepiece is the whole unit that contains the lens. Nikon has a service center in many countries. If you have one in your country then they can order the part. I have ordered from Nikon. They find the part number if you tell them your model and can email you an order form. Alternately Binoculars.com is very good to deal with as is Adorama Camera in New York. Both will sell internationally.

They can be fixed but not at home. You need a collimator to properly align the optical paths. If under warranty send them back. If not get a quote first repairs are expensive and you may be better off with a new one.

While I am mostly a camera expert , I have seen the problem that you are describing. Inside the camera there is a little reflector which is used to invert the picture and focus it to the viewing eyes.
These reflectors are stuck to the camera casing using epoxy and the problem is that with time the epoxy becomes brittle and cracks. When it is cracked , the lens will move out of it's fixed posistion but the epoxy does not always break loose fully which is why you do not hear any rattle.
You could attempt to open it up and glue the lens back into posistion using some new epoxy , but you could possibly have some problems with the screws of they are not standard.
In this case ask a jeweler to repiar the binocular for you as this should not cost much to repiar...no more than $15.

Measure the diameter needed and then check bicycle inner tube diameters. Cut a short section, roll a quarter-inch inside-out, slip over the eyepiece, roll the other end inside-out to form a nice soft shoulder. Costs nearly nothing, works dandy.

unlikely that you can avoid glasses etc if you have a strong family history as
much of your vision is based on genetic outcomes. However there are foods and
supplements that you can take that might improve the health of your eyes;
such as broccoli, Brussels and red peppers that contain a lot of vitamin C
salmon and sardines are packed full of omega 3 which can help protect the tiny
blood vessels in the eye.
potatoes and spinach that are full of beta-carotene, vitamin c and lutein.
