Problem with Dioptrx application

Most of my viewing is done with a Denkmeier Binoviewer using a pair of Tele Vue 24MM Panoptics and a Denkmeier Power X Switch.  I recently decided to add a pair of Tele Vue Dioptrx lenses.  However, the 19mm Panoptics required the TLV-DRX-0100 Adapters to enlarge the end of the eyepieces so they would accommodate the large Dioptrx lenses. 
I quickly discovered that widening the ends of the Panoptics in this fashion interfered with the bridge of my nose to the extent I could not obtain my required inter-pupilary distance.  Bummer!
I kept the Dioptrx and mounted them on my 8MM and 10MM Delos EP's instead for single vision use and will likely sell the adapters.
This is just heads up for anyone considering adding Dioptrx lenses to 24MM or 19MM Panoptics for use in a bino.

Hi James, thank you for the info. I don't use Dioptrx, but I have a TeleVue Bino Vue with 24mm and 19mm panoptics. Thanks.
