Service & Repair

Servicing and repair of Opticron equipment is carried out at our headquarters in North Carolina. If you are experiencing a problem with your equipment please return it to us in one of the following ways:

1. Through an Authorized Opticron Dealer

Dealers are usually able to make simple assessments of any damage and should be able to pack and dispatch the item on your behalf. Some authorized dealers carry loaner stock for you to use while your instrument is away and will liaise with you throughout the process. Please contact your nearest Authorized Opticron Dealer for more information.

2. Direct

If you prefer, or if it is more convenient, please return your instrument directly to us for evaluation.

To make sure we have the correct information please download and complete a Repair Form (PDF) to accompany your equipment and make sure the instrument is properly packed for shipping.
