K-20D Diopter adjustment at limit

I have switched to using the Hoodman PhotoFrame eyeglasses and have encountered a "problem" that I'd like to discuss.

Since I'm now shooting with my naked and myoptic eye, I naturally needed to adjust the viewfinder diopter to compensate. The slider is now all the way to the right (with the camera in shooting position) and the focus looks good. My issue is, does it look the best that it can? Ideally, I'd like to be able to slide the adjustment a little further and take it past the best focus and then bring it back to the optimal other words, you can't be sure how much "enough" is until you can see what "too much" looks like.

Any ideas/comments?

You can get a slide-on diopter from Pentax which is more powerful than the built-in one, if that's what you need!
