    An eyepiece diopter is the right solution for seeing the whole screen with a non-hp finder. You need to be able to get your eye's pupil the right distance from the eyepiece and glasses prevent that from happening.

    I have a diopter in my finders even though I wear glasses when using the camera. I am nearsighted, but my accommodation has gone to hell and with distance glasses I find it a strain to focus as close as 1 meter. A +1 (marked '0' in Nikon-Speak as the combination of a -1 prism and a +1 lens is 0) moves the apparent focusing distance to infinity, where my corrected vision is better. I can only see the whole screen with an hp finder, but don't find using the non-hp finders on my F2/DE-1 and FM2 a problem when wearing glasses - the big difference was the use of a diopter lens.

    I fabricated +1.25 diopters for the same reason as Nicholas L, and using dollar store reading glasses as a source of lenses gets you much a much finer range in lens selection compared to finding discontinued/used or nonexistent Nikon products. Not to mention a $2 pair of reading glasses nets two lenses.
