The yoke which connects the eyepieces and keeps them aligned as the
focus changes is damaged. If you can easily move one eyepiece back and
forth with respect to the other then the yoke has broken, if not then
it's bent, probably cracked and waiting to break.This is easily the
most common fault on most binoculars, and it's always uneconomic to repair on budget brands such as Bushnell.
If bent, the yoke *might* be able to be straightened, but it will be weakened and the alignment afterwards will rarely be spot-on. If broken, then the yoke must be replaced professionally but the repair will cost more than replacing the binoculars with new. In any case, it's unlikely that Bushnell even list the spare part for it. The break cannot be simply glued: the contact area is too small to carry the loads it has to carry, and you also usually find that the yoke bent before breaking anyway so you then have all the same problems as you do with a bent yoke.
The fragile nature of the yoke is why binoculars must always be inserted into their case with the objective lenses facing down; this avoids shock loads on the delicate yoke assembly.
I hope that you've found my posting to be of use and in return ask only that you take a moment to rate my answer.

I'm assuming you have set the dioptre correctly for your eyes.
Normally this is caused by a collimation error when one (or both) prisms move. This can be by a small amount.
Your going to have to take them in for service/repair to fix this as is not a DIY problem. (Unless of course you have a collimator lying around)

If it just turns without making the bridge between the two eyepieces move up and down then they are broken. You will need to send them to Bushnell.

This depends on where you are geographically located. If you are in Australia there are only one or two people who can help. If you are in the USA the same applies. Try typing in "binocular repairs" into Google and see what pops up. For example in Australia you will find "The Binocular & Telescope Shop" and "York Optical" pop up.
