Opinions on Nikon DK-17M Magnifier

After reading this in photography life post, I ordered a DK-17M Magnifier for my D800. After receiving it, I found that while it does indeed magnify the viewfinder, it also considerably restricts my ability to see the entire frame. I need to move my eyes quite a bit to see the edges of the frame, and I am never able to see the entirety of the viewfinder all at once.

I do wear glasses, and this is in part the reason why I bought the DK-17M. I thought that it would make for a better experience than the original eyepiece, but I am finding that it is quite the opposite. I am wondering if others had similar experience with this?
