Modified my eyecup to fit a prescription lens
8

Shooting pictures while wearing eyeglasses is problematic. Your eye can't get as close to the eyecup, viewfinder appears smaller, stray light enters and just isn't as immersive. Some people can take off their glasses and adjust using the built-in diopter. However, I have a fairly high prescription and the adjustment range just isn't enough. The solution for most would be just to wear contacts, but medically I can't wear them so I was out of luck.

So I went to my local optician and asked them to custom cut a tiny lens from an old pair of glasses and fit it inside the eyecup. Bam, it works, I can now shoot without the hindrance of wearing eyeglasses.
