I also have a newly bought Super A. I wear glasses but I still thought at first that the viewfinder wasn’t as clear as the k-5ii because it’s old. Trying it with glasses on was a nice surprise.

I have -1.75 on my right eye, does that mean that I will need an additional -1 diopter correction lens?
Yep a -1 "M" Series version for your Super A. (The K series correction ones were smaller and are not marked with an "M")

Manual focus Pentax SLRs (excluding the LX) had a -1 diopter built-in to the viewfinder, so you would need to add -1 to that for -2.

Note you may find the -2 a bit too much correction and just leave it as is.

Thanks, then I will be on the lookout for a M series -1.

Might be so but I will still need to try it out. As it is now, I canít focus without glasses and itís not because of an old dirty camera like I thought before trying with glasses. I sometimes forget I need glasses, even though Iíve been using glasses (and contacts) for 16 years.. I sometimes forget putting them on when going out Blurry world is like abstract art is what I think then.
