I own a 10x50 redfield binoculars that can not focus. The company is now out of business so how do I get them fixed at little or no cost because they have a life time warranty? Or am I simply out of luck?

It is possible for someone to disassemble binoculars to clean etc. But if you are not experienced, there is a high chance it will be out of focus once you assemble it. The vision might even become blurry.
So I advise you to get it serviced by a professional.
The battery in my pair of FreeFocus Fieldvision 10x50 binoculars is a AG3 button cell. I cannot tell you more because the rest of the writing on it is in either Japanese of Chinese characters. I hope this helps
Bausch & Lomb binoculars did carry a Limited Life Time Warranty. I quote the first paragraph of the enclosed warranty card. The rest of the card just mentions the address to send them. The card is old and always good to check for the current address. "Your Bushnell or Bausch & Lomb binocular, riflescope, or telescope is unquestionably warranted to be free of defect in material and workmanship for the lifetime of the original owner." Coating wearing off is not considered a warranty repair as coatings can come off over time. Rubbing too hard often or not blowing off debris before cleaning can do this. Using cleaners not made for coated lenses also can. The Bausch & Lomb Discoverer was made by Bushnell. They have owned B & L's binoculars business since the mid seventies. Bushnell still make the discoverer line under the Bushnell brand name. Contact Bushnell in your country for service.
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.
