This would mean that they would grind the eyepiece element to a particular eyeglass prescription.
In the end I figure that, if this was ever true, the "customized-eyepieces" came with a large price tag attached.
I never gave it much thought but now I wonder if there's any truth to this "urban myth" and, if so... Is there a similar "courtesy" available for arriflex cameras? Anybody know where I can have one made?

I once worked with a Dop who had one of those, it was quite a pain, since it was a 2 camera shoot and we constantly had to switch his diopter from one camera to the other depending on which one he was operating (ST or LT)
Sounds like a contact lens would help!
