    Default Binocular repairs in CT

    Hi All
    I know there are a previous threads about this but they all appear to be outdated. Does anybody know of a private individual who can repair/service binoculars in Cape Town. I'm aware that the agents could offer a quote at a cost, but I'm looking for someone who can fix a relatively old pair of bino's that have sentimental value only.
    Thanks in advance.

    I think the lens repair workshop at Orms also work on Binocs but whoever you take it to if done right it will not be cheap, binoculars are not very easy to open and work on.

    Why not try Nikon in Woodstock?

    Orms or Cameraland are the people to ask. I seriously doubt itís worth trying to fix old binoculars for the same reasons already mentioned. Mostly itís prisms that out of alignment. Cheaper binos the prisms are glued in position (canít be fixed) and really old high quality binos usually also have mould issues on lenses and prisms

    Maybe a bit far from you but try Richards Camera repairs in Durbanville.
