I've spoken to the designer of the Tekiac eyecup (and have one on order), but he doesn't recommend it with glasses. You have to get your eye pretty close to avoid shading in the corners.

How do you install a new eyecup? Does it involve taking off the old eyecup? I'm afraid that the new one will come loose very easily.

You don't take off the old eyecup, at least on the X-E series cameras. The Tekiac eyecup is like a thumb grip, it slides in to the flash mount and provides a Nikon DK-19 flange mount around the existing eyecup.

The Willy's Wonder eyecup that isn't available yet for the X-E3 but is available for the other X-series cameras screws into the left side strap lug and provides a similar mount around the existing eyecup. It leaves the flash mount free.

Thanks for the info.
