since some models change the size of the eyecaps they use ,your best bet is to take off the other side and mail to bushnell for a proper match

SOURCE: Binocular repair

Yes they can be but need to be completely taken apart and cleaned. The salt will corrode any metal parts such as screws etc. The water may have left a coating on the internal glass services. Any impurities in the water may cause fungus to grow. Professionally done this will cost a tidy sum so a quote would be best. The warranty wouldn't cover water immersion if they are not meant to be waterproof. You could ask but Minolta no longer make binoculars and have forwarded on their servicing here is the web address
http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/contact/binoculars/

You may find that for the cost of repair you can purchase a replacement set. Minolta binoculars are heavily discounted now. For sentimental reasons I have paid more than a binocular is worth to have it repaired.

If you are going to buy a new set and still want to try at home....BE ADVISED this may RUIN the alignment and you should ONLY DO IT if you are going to replace them and DO NOT CARE if they end up in the rubbish bin. THIS IS A LAST RESORT THROW AWAY FIX.

Try and unscrew the objective barrels, the ones with the large lens. If they come off you should have access to the inside. If they don't unscrew easily stop. You will damage them. Flush them out with clean water and let them dry naturally. Avoid letting them dry where dust can enter the inside. This may clear the salt from inside them, Depends on how long since they were dropped into the water. The salt may have caused damage to the glass coatings. When dry, screw the barrels back on. You may end up with a double image. This may be able to be corrected by loosening or tightening the barrels. THIS IS A HACK FIX AND YOU SHOULD ONLY DO IT IF THE COST TO REPAIR IS TOO EXPENSIVE AND YOU ARE GOING TO REPLACE THEM.

I am missing one eye protector on my binoculars. Where can I purchase a new set? Thank you


Use short section of bicycle inner tube. Roll over inside out to form a lip, slip over eyepiece, roll other end over. Ask bike shops; many inner tube diameters -- one will almost surely fit -- used, blown-out tubes are free for asking.

Eyecup part for Tasco binocular - 7x35


Eyepiece cushions for binoculars, telescopes, microscopes ... are all about the same size (Because our eyes are all about the same size!), and can be easily made from bicycle inner-tube material of the appropriate diameter. Measure the outside diameter of the eyepiece and ask a bike shop for the right tube inside diameter; a few mm smaller. Cut a section about twice the "depth" of the cushion you wish to have, roll the section over itself and stretch it around the eyepiece with the uncut (rolled) edge uppermost.

Replacement parts for Tasco binoculars


You'll need to measure your eyepiece in "mm". Also determine if your eyepiece has an outer ring the eyepiece will slip over. You can find eyecups/guards on Ebay. Search under Binocular Eyecup or Binocular Eye Guard. There are also eyecups under "rubber eyecups/rubber eyeguards" but alot of these are for Microscopes and may not fit. You will need to pay close attention to the mounting type and measurements.
