I dropped My binoculars into water!

I accidently dropped my binoculars into water, and now there is a film of water inside the lence. It's not water proof. Would i be able to repair it?

Hi

Don't attempt to disassemble the binoculars and fix them yourself. Home remedies for binoculars are always a bad idea. You can try to let them dry out and see if they are still useable, but chances are they will not.

Contact the manufacturer for repair instructions. Since these are not a waterproof model, it will probably cost you to repair them. If your binocular cost you less than $100, it will probably not be cost effective to repair them after you've paid for shipping and repair.
