Binoculars, telescopes, rifle scopes have a inert gas inside to keep them from fogging up inside. I suggest you send it in for repair. Hope this helps you with this problem.

The center hinge is loose. I have to use both hands to hold the binoculars up to both eyes.

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.

My 18x50 IS binoculars are broken; the right eye piece won't focus and I hear a clunk inside when I turn it over; the left focuses just fine. What can I do and where; here in las vegas?


Sounds like you've dislodged one of the prisms inside. A service center can look it over for you, but from personal experience, it's cheaper to replace them than pay to ship them to/from the service folks plus the estimation fee just to find out that they'll have to be replaced, anyway. Sorry.

Eye piece needs to be replaced


You will have to send it in for repairs, binoculars are filled with nitrogen gas which will have to be replaced.
look for bushnell repairs on line. Make sure when you send them in that you also tape your name and mailing address on the binoculars to ensure you get them back. Also insure the package when sending it in the mail.

One side won't focas


You don't say what model binoculars you have, but there are two possibilities (well, three, but the third one is that your binocs are broken - lets try the other two first!)

Some very fine binoculars have individual focusing for each eyepiece. You focus each side for your eyesight. If that's the case with your binoculars, there won't be a central focusing control.

If you DO have a central focus knob, it's possible that your binoculars have a "diopter" focus on one or the other eyepiece. Look at the rim of the eyepiece for a marking that looks like "+ . . . | . . . -" or something similar. What you want to do is focus the binocs using the central control so the the UNMARKED eyepiece is in focus for you (close one eye to focus), then switch eyes and focus the marked eyepiece by rotating the eyepiece rim until both eyes have good focus.

Binocular manufacturers do this because many people have better vision in one eye than the other, and many people also prefer to use binoculars without their glasses. Hope this helps.

One of the eyes got broken when it fell out of the tree stand


chances are when they dropped other optics moved as well, that means they will have to be realingned. i dont know what they cost you but i think its a done deal. sorry for that ,but there is so much cheap junk on the market today that it makes sense to just buy a new one as a good optics teh would cost at least $80.00 per hour to [email protected]

I agree with you on that! I have a feeling they are either Nikon or Leupold sourced. The body is alot like green ring leupold ive seen but the lenses have a magenta multicoating on a lens surface which ive seen on nikon. I'm in the process of looking for the maker of them myself as I need an objective lens. I'm going to call the Cabela's Cust SVC number and see what they say. I've heard the new Euro styled binoculars are made by Meopta.
