Is it possible to get custom prescription viewfinder lens correction?
Dec 29, 2012

I saw my optician today to get a new prescription and took along my new DSLR. He said my astigmatism is my main problem, and that diopter adjusting with Nikon's available correction lenses won't help. He proved it to me using various lenses. I need a custom made lens for my prescription. I don't see anything at Nikon (doesn't have to be Nikon, I would go with any brand offering it if needed).

Because of the shape of my face my glasses push my eyes too far away from the viewfinder to see the info at the bottom without shifting everything, and using my glasses will cause them to become scratched as well.  I could try contacts but then would have no close vision.

Thanks for any info. I can't imagine that this is not possible with all the photographers out there, especially professionals. I'm willing to work with anybody in the country.
