My K-r suffered something similar time ago. I thought my eyepiece were scratch or something, and I tried to clean it without succes till suddenly it was clear, days after. my conclusion was that the eyepiece was never scratched or dirty, but was affected by condensation , maybe when i left the camera in the car or on a cool room and took it to a warmer place, inside air produced condensation. Abrupt temperature changes on DSLRs produce condensation of internal air gaps like inside eyepiece or mirrorboxes. Leave your camera on a place with stable temperature-humidity ambient with silica, and wait if it get better. Avoid an extensive touch or handling of your eyepiece.
