I have a pair of Vortex 10x42 binocs. Absolutely love them. However, in the last year or so I can't get the diopter to adjust enough to get a clear view. I was thinking this was due to a change in my eyes, but I have tried several other brands of binocs and they all seem to adjust well enough.

Think this is just a fluke, or something wrong with binocs? 99.9% sure they haven't been dropped or otherwise abused.

I've got a pair of Vortex Diamondbacks. I think the right side has its own focus adjustment, so if yours has that maybe mess with it with your left eye closed. If you can get it focused, then open both eyes and play with the diopter adjustment. My experience with their warranty department is that if you send them something they are just gonna replace it, but that might not always be true.

Their warranty department is great! I sent in a pair earlier this summer with a small issue and they replaced stuff I didn't even realize needed it. Feels like they're new all over again.

I find it easier to not shut the eye. Keep both open but put hand over each side as you adjust the other. Don’t know why this matters but it works better than just shutting each eye as you adjust.
