Re: eye glass wearers

I wear glasses, and i use Nikon binos... I have two different pair.... one ulta compact for just tossing into a small pack and a larger pair for the better power and view.

Re: eye glass wearers

get a pair that the plastic eye cups twist in.. wearing glasses you have to fold down the ruber eye parts and they get brittle and brake because of that so having the ones that screw in helps alot.. personaly i use the nikon 7-15x35s

All binoculars sold today have eyecups that can be collapsed for those who where glasses.

Re: eye glass wearers

As Salvage said get a pair with rubber eye cups and also get the ones with invividual focus for each eye piece. Set them up for your eyes wearing glasses and you will be in business.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Also, the eye piece objective. The bigger they are, the more eye relief they will have! I wear glasses, and found this out. I use a pair of Bushnell Trophy.

Re: eye glass wearers

I use Minox binos with the screw in eye cups like stated above, they work great with my glasses or contacts.

Re: eye glass wearers

This is a good article on eye relief and people that wear glasses. I use a Nikon Monarch.

Be sure to consider magnification too. I bought a 10X and I wish I had gotten an 8X. The lower the magnification the easier it is to focus on the subject (image is less jumpy). I guess it depends on how steady you are. Try different magnificatons in the store.

Re: eye glass wearers

I have a pair of leupold 10x rogues that the eyepieces turn in and a pair of steiner predator pros that have the rubber eyepieces. I use the steiners when I have the contacts in and the leupolds when I have the glasses on.
