Focal peaking question

Is there any way to get focal peaking through the viewfinder? I get it on the rear display but was curious if there was an alternative.

On a camera with an EVF (like the sony a7 for instance) you can certainly get peaking in the viewfinder. For a traditional OVF you can get a microprism and/or split screen focusing screen to help with manual focusing.
