Well.....I'm not sure if you would benefit from an eyecup.    I don't wear
glasses but I just tried mine with sunglasses and can honestly say that it
is not a good combination.  But then I don't see how wearing glasses with
any camera viewfinder is a good combination, based on my experience of a
few seconds ago.  How do you eyeglass wearers cope?

For me the main benefit is the increased stability from holding the camera
against the upper part of my eye socket.  I'm not sure how good it is as a
shield against bright light.  The cup on my camera isn't very large.
