I suggested seeing if a qualified optician/ophthalmologist could assist in 
determining what correction you may need. There is a lot more to this than a 
theoretical number. I am not suggesting that they manufacture a correction 
eyepiece for the camera. I would think that very very few would actually be 
able to supply in any case. Maybe a high end service? 
In addition there are some eye conditions that cannot be fully corrected by 
any spherical eyepiece and you cannot determine what will work well over for 
example extended shooting time without good qualified advice. If you can 
find a Leica store that actually had the range of diopters in stock then you 
would be very fortunate. I have never been in a store that had them on hand. 
In my experience specific ones may need to be ordered in.
