Wait for summer to come - or have them serviced and the grease replaced.

Hi, I have fungus inside the ocular of my Zeiss Jenoptem 10x50 binoculars. How should I open the binoculars in order to clean the fungus? Thank you!

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.

Seems like its difficult to get a good focus at longer ranges now and glass is not as clear

Could be you are near sighted, or they need to go to Zeiss. Send them to Zeiss.

How to focus my Zeiss 10x40B TP binoculars

Your binoculars are known as the Zeiss Classic or what was once known as the Dialyt. They focus differently from the usual binoculars like those mentioned. The rear wheel is to focus both binocular barrels while using them. The front focus wheel is adjust the right eyepiece to suit your right eye. Binocular manufacturers take into account each eye is slightly different. To focus the Dialyt...First close your right eye and turn the rear wheel until the image is sharp in the left barrel. Leave the focus wheel alone. Now close left eye and adjust the front wheel until the image is sharp for your right eye. The image should now be clear and in focus for both eyes. It should not be needed to use the front wheel from now on. The rear wheel is what you will use to change the focus from near to far objects.

Focus is really hard to turn.

You can have Zeiss do it, or I can do it. I'm a binocular dealer and technician.

Binoculars Stiff to focus

if they continue to get stiff then eventually the 3 set screws that hold the focus wheel loosen, and you will have no focus capability, its rare with zeiss but sounds like they should be regreased. the problem is to regrease you have to take completely apart as it is internal focus.if i can help any further contact me@
