Many local opticians stock trial diopters that you can try for free.  That’s what I’ve done to ensure optimal experience despite knowing my prescription, which needs to factor in the M’s built in -.5 diopter.

So I just lean it on the back of the camera? I mean, I need to go and ask, i better know what I am asking for :)

I lightly taped it to the top of my camera. The optician was very interested in the concept and process and was happy to help (and provided tape...although it could more awkwardly be held in place by hand)... he also correctly predicted the best diopter given the built in correction (and the corresponding 2m virtual viewing distance. I also wear glasses to correct for distance and astigmatism, so a +.5 diopter correction above and beyond is fairly common for aging eyes like mine.

This is from Leica US page which basically  means I don’t need a diopter as my prescription is -0.5:

They are available in grades of +/- 0.5, 1, 1.5, 2 and 3 diopters. Please note that the Leica M-Viewfinder is preset by default to -0.5 diopters, so anyone wearing glasses of 1 diopter strength would require a +1.5 diopters correction lens.”
