I'm having a problem using binos. We don't have the best binos at work, but what we do have makes me sick using them. Problem is I see double out of them. The smallest pair is fine, but I can't see far and they suck at night.

What is causing this seeing double? I have perfect 20/20 vision

I have same problem Wade, I have perfect 20/20 but binos freak my eyes out. I normally turn them sideways and use them as a monocular instead. I always see double and can't seem to focus. Thought it was just me lol.

I could see double two if I open them up too wide but when I bring the closer together they work fine.

YeH but that's not how they should work. I push them together all the way and it's fine, but then I can't use both eyes.

I have a pair that does the same thing. Over time it seems the two optics that comprise the binoculars have become misaligned. I don't know if it's fixable, I haven't put a lot of effort into trying to realign them.

I had a a cheepo pair on my desk for watching deer out the window. On day a guy knocked them off the desk onto the floor. No one can see correct from them now. Like KRoyal I use them as a monocular now.

I used the only method I know of, I beat them on the steering wheel hoping something would move back into alignment
