Hi,

One of the lenses or the mirror has been jolted loose. Back to the manufacturers with them to see what the repair cost will be.. Not sure if it would be cheaper to replace them but see what the estimate is..
I wouldn't be keen to go inside them in case you let in dust or moisture.

One image is slightly above the other at all distances. After using the binoculars for even a couple of moments, my eyes are strained. The problem was present when the binoculars were purchased, however...


The oculars are not aligned properly causing double vision. Check on the binoculars to see if there is a place to adjust the alignment of either of the oculars. Look for any loose screws that may cause the two oculars to be out of alignment.
If this is not the case try adding some torque to the binoculars to see if the will adjust to where they will both point in the same direction. The eyes can fuse disparate images slightly but there is a very small range that they can handle. If the two images are separated by more than this small amount it will cause eye strain and double vision.

Try grabbing the binoculars in both hands and twisting the body in the opposite direction of the double vision until the images coincide.

Image appears double and slighly off when viewing


I was having a double vision problem with my Barska 10-30X50 zoom, 195FT/100YDS binoculars. One image was always higher than the other. This was tolerable at low zoom, but was further aggravated the more I zoomed in. I found that I could grasp both barrels and twist them in opposite directions (one side up, the other side down) and force the two images to merge--but that was a strain and an unpleasant viewing experience. As an experiment, while looking through the binoculars, I grasped the far end of the right barrel and twisted it on its axis. Nothing happened at first, but after a certain amount of resistance it began to rotate independently of the body. Lo and behold, this shifted the barrel's axis, and the image for that eye moved vertically! I turned it until the two images merged, and now I'm thrilled to say that the problem is solved! I don't have a clue if this would work on any other brand or model, but it's worth a try!

In the UK your best bet would be to send them to Kay Optical. They have an enviable reputation in repairing binoculars. Another place in the UK is Cley Spy in Norfolk who also have much experience with older optics.

Sorry neither is too close to you.

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.
