Good afternoon

 

I need your help.

 

I try to find some  pocket binos (100/150 USD) that the use were easy with eye glasses.

Is it possible you tell me about brands and models? 

 

Thak you very much

Nikon Pro Staff Compact ATB binoculars have good eye relief and they come in 8x25, 9x25, 10x25, and 12x25mm.

Pentax offers the UCF X II and UCF WP series in 8x25, 10x25, 12x25, and 16x25mm also offering good eye relief.

Sad to say, none are really good with glasses as you give up some FOV unless the glasse's lenses are really close to your eyes.
I keep my glasses on a string around the neck and just drop em' down with the binocs

Compacts are generally difficult for alot of reasons. However, some people still "want" them, and the market has no shortage of them because of the demand.

Yes, john45acp is right.

Binoculars and eye glasses are not compatible. However i think that there are some better than others, for us, the eye glasses men

I have had little or no trouble getting the full FoV from most binoculars - even while wearing my eyeglasses, despite having a fairly high level of near-sightedness. I do pay quite a bit more for my glasses so as to get the very thinnest and lightest lenses possible - which I'm sure helps alot.

 

I also absolutely love pocket binoculars.   I have one with me all of the time.  The simple reality is that often a full-sized or even mid-sized binocular is not convenient or even appropriate to be carrying around. My pocket binos have allowed me a close-up view of a lot of things that I would have otherwise missed.

 

For around $150 or less, I would suggest you take a look at:

  • Bushnell Legend (8x26 and 10x26 reverse-porro prism or 9x25 roof prism models)
  • Pentax DCF MC II (8 and 10x25 models)
