10x50 pcf

I have an old, "sentimental pair" of PENTAX 10X50 PCF binos that are distorted to look through and I would like to get them repaired. Can anyone guide me in the right direction to do this?

Distorted? If you mean the images are out of sync (not lining up) between the left and right eyes, that's a collimation issue. Perhaps caused by the binocs getting a knock. It might be an easy fix, if you are not handy with jewellers screwdrivers maybe a friendly tech guy will take off the eyepieces and have a look at the prisms see if something can be readily realigned. Or to put it another way, if it's not an easy fix, it's probably not worth it.
