Spotmatic eye piece

Hi Im having trouble shooting with my spotmatic. Glasses make it very difficult to shoot with any camera but with my spotmatic it never had that rubber eye piece ring to give some eye relief. I just bought new glasses with no scratch resistance about a week ago and don’t want the plastic eye piece to scratch the glasses. A link to where I can purchase this eye piece ring for the spotie would be greatly appreciated.

Since the little cap to blackout the eye piece of the M series fits the Spotmatic I would guess you can use one of those.
Look for those "rubber cups" in ebay or at porters camera

Something like this I guess: 190245626682

If you can't find an original Pentax brand eyecup, a Canon A-series eyecup will work.
I prefer the Canon brand as it is a softer rubber.

Beware aftermarket eyecups as they often have metal parts that can scratch.
They are also generally much thicker, placing your eye uncomfortably far from the eyepiece.
