Binoculars, also known as field glasses are two telescopes mounted side-by-side and aligned to point in the same direction. This allows the viewer to use both eyes , providing binocular vision, when viewing distant objects. Most are sized to be held using both hands, although sizes vary widely from opera glasses to large pedestal mounted military models.
