Question about Nikon Optics
The double image is caused by the most common killer-fault on almost all binoculars: the yoke assembly which the eyepieces is mounted on has either bent or broken.
The only fix is to replace the yoke assembly: unbending it is not accurate enough and usually breaks it, gluing is no good as the contact surfaces are far too small for the adhesive to carry the mechanical loads, and usually results in a yoke which still needs unbending...
It's not a cheap fix and is only worth doing on really expensive models: given that you can buy the same pair again for less than £60 in the USA and around £100 in the UK then it's a no-brainer as the new model will cost far less than the repairs.
Sorry to disappoint you, but some faults just cannot be economically repaired. I hope that my answer has still been of use to you and that you take a moment to rate my answer.
