No -4 & -5 diopter eyepieces?

Why are there no -4 & -5 diopter eyepieces for the pro DSLRs?  Any there any third party eyepieces that work?

Have you tried https://www.nikonusa.com/en/about-nikon/search.page?q=correction%20eyepiece&currentPage=1&facet=Overview

I'm guessing you are looking for the round ones for D1 thru D6, correct ?

As the health crisis is having an effect on pretty much everything, you may be waiting quite a while for stock delivery on low volume items like this. You might be better served to take the frame from another diopter to your optician and have one custom made.

That page isn't so helpful as it doesn't say anything about which cameras it's talking about.  -4 & -5 are available for older cameras and the current cheaper DSLRs with rectangular eyepieces, but not the circular ones.

Correct.

As far as I can tell, Nikon has never made them.

So: Why?

And: Does any 3rd party?

I guess I could just make one or wear contacts but this all just seems odd.
