Maintenance and cleaning

Important!

  1. Protect the binocular from falls and impact with hard objects
  2. Clean the glass only as recommended
  3. Protect the optical surfaces with the caps

Meopta binoculars feature a robust dustproof, waterproof design but, like any other optical-mechanical device, they require careful handling and protection of optical surfaces against damage.

When the binocular is not being used, its outer optical surfaces should be protected with the supplied covers. Dust deposited on the mechanical parts of the binocular should be removed with a soft cloth. Dust on the optical parts should be blown off or wiped off gently with an antistatic cloth supplied with the binocular. After using the binocular in rain, we recommend thorough drying with a soft cloth.

The glass aperture of the dioptric knob (5) can only be cleaned with alcohol or detergent — never use toluene, ether, acetone or similar substances, thinners and solvents for cleaning.

Store the binocular in a dry, ventilated area. For storage in humid or tropical conditions, we recommend placing the binocular in a case, together with a moisture-absorbing agent such as silica gel.

Optical Cleaning Kit

To maintain your optical device in perfect condition we recommend purchasing a special Meopta cleaning kit: 2-in-1 brush, optical cloth, balloon, cleaning fl uid.
