Ist DL Viewfinder display/symbols blurry

Just wondering if anyone has experienced this. After having used my ist DL for several years on auto - I finally decided to learn how to use it properly - but trying it out last night I realised that all the display/symbols (focus, shutterspeed etc.) in the viewfinder are blurry. Any suggestions appreciated.

Have you adjusted the diopter (the little sliding switch above the viewfinder)????

No! I'll try it first thing when I get home. Thanks for the suggestion - I hope it is as simple as me not knowing something (this simple!).
