Found this on the Sony tips and solutions section for the A99:

When shooting in direct sunlight, the viewfinder image is not clearly seen.

It is due to irregular reflection in the viewfinder, caused by the light reflected from the surface of the eyelid or eye. Also, if you shoot wearing eyeglasses, reflected light may come into the viewfinder from the gap between the eyecup and the eyelid. If this happens, avoid direct sunlight to the eyecup by covering the upper part of the viewfinder with your hand, etc.

Looks to me like you are doing exactly what Sony recommends in this situation and that the cause in effect is the light reflected from your glasses.
