Started needing to wear my eye glasses full time. Found my binocs difficult to see well thru. What do you long time wearers do to make it work? Thanks

I remove my eyeglasses to use binocs. I have the same problem that you have.

Leupold makes binos with adjustable eye cups. They turn down for wear with glasses. I use them all the time with sunglasses on!

I take them off to hunt with I can see through a scope or binos better, but I do wear them when turkey hunting so I can see the fiber optic sights on my shotgun.

I use a monocular but I still need to take the glasses off or the lense will get all smutched up from the rubber eye cup.

I have to remove my glasses when I need to use my binocs too.

I bought one of those old lady strap things that my grandma used to have for her glasses - they go around your neck so you don't drop your glasses - and I just whip off my glasses and let them hang, and I bring up my binocs.

I saw a nice camo-colored strap when I was at one of the gift shops down at Ohiopyle, and I figured I would try it. Works well.

I've worn glasses pretty much my entire life. I guess after years of looking through scopes and such, I'm just used to it.

Best bet would be to take them off or jack them up on your forehead.

Many binoculars (and many 35mm cameras) have a diopter adjustment. Check it out. For most people, changing the diopter adjustment will allow you see well with the binoculars with glasses off.

If you lost the instructions, try doing a search online about how to make the adjustment.

Use to roll the eyecups or push them up with the binocs. Got ILASIK last year. Now all I need are a pair of cheap readers to fill out the tags.
