Servicing & Repairs

For historical reasons, our repair department was situated in Glasgow for many years but in 2016, it was relocated to our head office in Halesworth, Suffolk.

During the relocation process, we had to restrict our repairs to Viking and RSPB brands only but we are pleased to say that the department is fully up and running in Halesworth and we can now service and repair almost any brand of binocular & telescope again with the exception of Steiner equipment which we believe, can only be repaired at their factory in Germany.

We stock a range of spare parts for many brands and in particular, Carl Zeiss Jena binoculars as we acquired the entire parts stock from the UK distributor before it closed.

We are also able to service and repair ex-military and WD equipment subject to parts being available. Ross London, Barr & Stroud (not the range currently on the UK market), REL and Bausch & Lomb are just some of the names on equipment we have refurbished in the past.

Repair Procedure

If you feel that your binocular or telescope is not quite as it should be (image not very clear or alignment in the case of a binocular) and would like us to check it over, then please fill in our repair form, pack it carefully and send to:

Repair Department
Viking Optical Ltd
Blyth Road
Suffolk IP19 8EN

On receipt, we will examine it and send you an estimate for what needs to be done. Please ensure you have completed and enclosed the repair form so we can contact your regarding your product.

Repair Prices

Our standard service charges including VAT, but excluding carriage are listed below:

Realignment and external cleaning: £50.00

Full overhaul (internal/external cleaning & realignment): £85.00

The above prices do not include the cost of any replacement parts.

If our estimate is declined, we only charge for return delivery (Mainland £8.50 ; Scottish Highlands/Islands £12.50).

If your equipment is still under warranty, then you are advised to send it back to the appropriate manufacturer in the first instance.

If you would like to contact us, please call 01986 875315 or email

Viking Optical
The latest in image stabilised technology from our long time Japanese partners.
Binocular magnifications over 10x are very difficult to hold still enough for comfortable viewing.
Now try the new SCOUT. The unstabilised image is virtually impossible to follow, but with a flick of the switch, the view is completely transformed. Even if you are on a moving vehicle or a boat, the image is remarkably stable, allowing you to view for longer periods without straining your eyes. The image stabilising facility is backed up by a top quality optical system with multicoated lenses and phase corrected prisms. Altogether a remarkable instrument at an affordable price.
