Any suggestions on a good set of binoculars that work well when using eye glasses. My old ones just don't work for me without glasses anymore and at 71the glasses are now necessary. I want either 10-42 or 10-50, by the way the 4 figure glasses are not in my league.

The link above is from Bird Watchers. A good article about using binos with a long eye relief while wearing glasses.

Another vote for Nikon. I have a pair of Nikon Monarchs that are excellent. They are big and heavy, but are under $500 and are top-notch if you aren't carrying them around all day. No backpacking with these!!

I went through this recently. Nikon Monarch's are good but so are Vortex Diamondbacks. Vortex's are made in WI and come with a no questions asked full lifetime replacement warranty and are less expensive than Nikon Monarch's.

I have a pair of Leupold 10x40 roof prism that work well for me. I like them better than the Nikon because they are waterproof. I have an old pair of Bausch & Lomb 9x35 Porro prism, but I like the Leupold better because the optics are equal, they're waterproof, lighter, and work better with my glasses. They aren't the equal optically to Leica or Swarovski, but are darn good for the price.
