If your vision isn’t 20/20 or you wear glasses but they get in the way while you’re shooting, you should try a diopter adjustment. To the right of your viewfinder, you’ll find a small dial. This adjusts the image you see in the viewfinder, but not how your camera focuses.
To properly set it, hold the camera up to your eye (take off your glasses if your goal is to shoot without them). Depress the shutter halfway so that the camera autofocuses. While holding the shutter halfway down, turn the diopter dial until the image you see through the viewfinder is sharp. That’s it!
This will help if you’re unable to see a sharp image through your viewfinder but find that your autofocus is actually correct or especially if you’re manually focusing.
