I just bought the Nikon Action EX 8x40 ATB binocular and I was wondering how far the ocular lenses are recessed from the eyepiece? would their be any chance of scratching the lens with my glasses while looking through them?

What would be a suitable distance for the lenses to be recessed?

Stand your binocular up on a table, turn the twist-up eyecups to their
lowest postion, lay your eyeglasses on top of the twist-up eyecups,
you can visually inspect the distance between your eyeglass lenses &
the eyepiece lenses.
