I have a pair of Swarovski 8-56 sl's that I bought new several years ago. I took them hunting yesterday and it seems that the lenses are not aligned. (if there is such a thing). I never get the "one big circle" but 2 distinct circles.

Should I send them back and have them checked out or am I crazy? It seemed like each of my eyes were looking at a different image.

Are they adjusted for your eye distance correctly?

Sounds like the barrels are out of alignment, did somebody sit on it.

sometimes, the prism might be knocked out of its holding place. It is time to send it back for service.

+1 .  This is fairly common on bino's. Not a major fix.More like a minor tune-up. Send it in, they will take care of the problem for you.
 
Swarovski 8x56 =   NICE !!
