Does anyone know if there is a way to fix a small chip on the eyepiece in binos? I was elk hunting today and noticed I had a chip and its noticeable when I look through my binos which is incredibly annoying! Lol

I would sure try.....Chiping is not very common. How the heck did you do that?

Lol I don't have a clue! I just noticed that they weren't clear on the right side and after I cleaned then real good I saw there was a chip in it. I've never had binos do that and I didn't think my zeiss ever would!

Ikeepitcold- that's good news!! Lol thank you!

They should take care of you if you bought them from a Zeiss Dealer. Zeiss has a great CS reputation.

I feel your pain Jen. I chipped a pair about 10 years ago. Granted they were only a pair of Bushnells but I still didn't have a clue how they got chipped. They weren't the best glass but the best I had at the time. I sent them in and they replaced them no questions asked. I just had to pay a small processing fee. I have found that most companies in the outdoor industry stand by their products. I would think that Zeiss would be one of those companies. Good luck!
