Thanks Tom -- that's exactly what happened to mine (my son used them and
then put them down ever so carefully on the edge of the table -- then
brushed against them and knocked them off!)
I appreciate the suggestion!

I have the same binos, had the same problem...dropped 'em
about 5-6 years ago and knocked them out of alignment. Hence, double vision.
I took mine to ProCam, a camera shop in White River Jct. They fixed 'em
right up...can't remember what they charged me, but it was less than $100
and considerably less than the purchase price of a new pair. I'd try the
Burlington shop first, since I think ProCam probably just sent the binos
back to the factory for alignment. If Burlington says they can't fix them,
ProCam is right under the rr bridge in White River. Easyto find.
