Eos 5D MKIV Eyepiece read out brightness

As a fairly new eos 5d mkiv user I've dicovered a problem. I'm in A VERY sunny place and I am having problems seeing the shutter iso and aperture settings when half pressing the shutter within the Eyepiece view. Can anyone tell me if it is possible to up the brightness of the green lettering?

There is a degree of autobrightness adjustment, but nothing you can control. This eyepiece should help.

Thanks for the info about auto brightness. I do already have a shield but it's not good enough. I think I've sourced a different one should be in the post! 

Thanks, John.  I might suggest that to someone.  Me!

I have found that OVFs, optical viewfinders, have a sweet spot for seeing the display.  This is especially true if you are wearing eyeglasses.
