Re: Eye glasses and Binoculars

I use Steiner Predator 8X30 while wearing my glasses. You just need to roll the rubber eyecups forward. Other than that I have no issues. Hope this helps you.

I thought I had a good handle on the situation.

Re: Eye glasses and Binoculars

Most if not all binoculars have collapsable eye pieces and will work with glasses.

Re: Eye glasses and Binoculars

I use Cabelas long eye relief binos. They don't make them anymore. All binos have folddown eyecups but there still is distance between your eyes and the lens because you are wearing glasses. You need a bino with long eye relief to see the full view (which I think you know already). I would look at the Nikon Monark. I've heard good things about them.

Re: Eye glasses and Binoculars

The only time I use bionoculars is when I am hunting chucks....Having 4 eyes my regular binoculars smudge my glasses up and it just bothers me...

Finally I found some long eye relief binoculars... They are not expensive either... Barska....Cheap but do they work great... Like them so much that I am going to start to carry them when I am hunting daytime predators..

Check Dunhams...Sometimes they give them away there...
Also think now you can shop on the web at Dunhams? Check the Barska brands out there. Make sure it does say LONG EYE RELIEF Binoculars...


For example this was on the Barska web page:

http://barska.com/storm-ex-10x42-binoculars-barska.html



Remember Dunhams sometime tries to get rid of some of their binoculars and such at reduced retail price..

Re: Eye glasses and Binoculars

Bushnell Trophy are a good pair. I wear glasses, so far they offer the best eye relief for the money. I have the 8x42, but not sure if they make they anymore.

Re: Eye glasses and Binoculars

I recently acquired a pair of Carson Optics binocs and would compare them to Nikon Monarchs any day.

I have the JK-042 http://www.carsonoptical.com/Binocul...ll_Size/JK-042

full size, 42mm objective roof prism, collapsible eye cups and they are very crisp and bright. I'm thoroughly pleased.

You can get them for under 90 bucks online, and when comparing them to the nikons, you are 200 less than the competitor easily.
