Bausch & Lomb was purchased by Bushnell in the 70's. Your elites are Japanese made and considered quite a good binocular. Bushnell continued to make the same binoculars bearing the Elite name but replaced B&L with Bushnell. The current elites are different shaped. You could contact Bushnell or you could go to a store in your area that may stock the older Bushnell Elites and try and see if the eyecups fit.

SOURCE: I have an old tasco 7x-15x35 zoom binocular.

You can't.

Tasco optical products are very cheaply made items, usually bought direct from whichever factory already makes the same or a similar model and then Tasco have their badges and packaging added.

They are consumer grade models which are not designed with longevity or repairs in mind; they're worth little when new and almost without value as used items.

The only repairs which can be done are by Tasco themselves whilst their products are under warranty. Except for the most minor of repairs, a warranty claim will simply involve exchanging the faulty item for a new one as any labour expended in repairs will often cost Tasco more than the wholesale price of a new unit.

Your only fixes are to live with the missing eyecup; to visit a binocular repair shop (not exactly commonplace) and see if you can buy an eyecup which can be adapted by yourself to fit; or to replace yours with another pair. You'll usually find that there are plenty for free on your local FreeCycle or Freegle group but they'll often have the even worse fault of a broken eyepiece yoke. But the price is right so it doesn't really matter if you have to collect five or six pairs before getting a good pair...

With all due respect, 7x-15x35 are going to be optically atrocious, so replacing your current pair is not a bad idea.

You'll need to measure your eyepiece in "mm". Also determine if your eyepiece has an outer ring the eyepiece will slip over. You can find eyecups/guards on Ebay. Search under Binocular Eyecup or Binocular Eye Guard. There are also eyecups under "rubber eyecups/rubber eyeguards" but alot of these are for Microscopes and may not fit. You will need to pay close attention to the mounting type and measurements.

How to hold binoculars properly


1. Remove the lens covers, if they are in place.
2. Set the diopter on the right barrel eyepiece. The function of this setting is to adjust between vision differences between your eyes if you are NOT wearing corrective lenses. Set to zero if you do have corrective lenses on (glasses or contacts). For proper diopter adjustment see this article: Binocular Selection Guide.
3. Most binoculars will hinge in the middle to allow for differences in the spacing between the eyes. Set the spacing to fit your eyes.
4. Adjust eye cups. Each eyepiece will have a means of maintaining the correct eye relief for the user. On quality binoculars the rim of the eyepiece will extend and retract as you twist the eyepiece rim. Move all the way in if you are wearing eyeglasses or adjust out if not wearing eyeglasses. You will know if they are set correctly when you look through the binoculars and check to be sure that the circular edge of the view should be sharp and not fuzzy. At this point we are not looking at any object in the view but rather the perimeter of the view. You may need to adjust the eye cups again to compensate. On lower cost binoculars the eyecup may only be a rubber lip that you either fold over (the "in" position) or out.
5 Raise binoculars to your eyes and use one finger to adjust the focus wheel on the center shaft between the two barrels, until the view is in sharp focus. If viewing for extended periods you may want to keep your elbows down near your side as this will increase comfort while viewing.
Final safety tip: Do not look at the sun through binoculars.

Many people enjoy observing nature with binoculars. Having them handy is key. Hunting, astronomy, marine use, and stadium sports are a few more activities where having a pair of binoculars can make a real impact to your experience.
