The eyecups on a Riton 10x42 binocular twist up and down so any viewer can see the full field and enjoy comfortable viewing with or without eyeglasses. When not using eyeglasses or sunglasses, keep the eyecups fully extended. For the best viewing when viewing through eyeglasses, twist eyecups down.

  • Properly focus the binocular

  • For the best possible views, follow this two-step process to properly adjust the center focus and diopter.
  • Choose an object that is about 20 yards away from you and stay in the same spot until you have adjusted the binocular for your eyes.
  • 1. Adjust the center focus—first start by closing your right eye or covering the right objective lens with your hand. Focus your left eye on the object and adjust the center focus wheel until the image is in focus. Leave the center focus in this position as you adjust the diopter.
  • 2. Adjust the diopter start by closing your left eye or covering the left objective lens with your hand. Look through your right eye and adjust the diopter ring (found on the right eyepiece) until the object is in focus. Make note of this diopter setting in case you need to set it again. From this point on, you will only need to use the center focus wheel.

Adjust the Interpupillary Distance

  • The interpupillary distance (IPD) is the distance between the centers of the left and right eye pupils. Match the IPD of your eyes to that of the binocular so that you see a single image that is free of shading.


The Riton X5 10x42 Binos come with a rainguard for the ocular
lenses and tethered objective lens covers. Use these covers to protect the lenses whenever you are not viewing.

Lens Covers

The Riton protective case provides safe storage between
viewing sessions.

  • Maintain the optical brilliance of the Diamondback binocular by keeping lens surfaces free of dirt, oils, and dust.
  • Protect lenses while out in the field Make use of the provided eyepiece and objective lens covers to protect the lenses when not viewing. Then, store the Riton Binos in the carry case between viewing sessions.
  • Keep lenses clean In order to enjoy the best views through your Riton binocular, take time to regularly clean the exterior lenses:
  • 1. Remove any dust or grit from lenses before wiping. Use
    a can of pressurized air, soft camel hair brush, or an acrylic
    optical brush.
  • 2. Clear lenses of smudges, fingerprints, or eyelash oil. Fog
    the lenses with your own breath, then use a non-abrasive lens cloth to clean the lenses.
  • Note: Use lens cleaning fluid and optical paper to clean
    lenses. Never use facial tissue, heavy cotton, or flannel
    clothing on lenses—these materials can scratch the surface of a lens.
