It's down to the optical design of the EVF. It's not so much the magnification as the eye relief as it's known. Some EVFs have the focal point further out from the EVF lens. I've not had any problem with my E-M5 or E-M1. Maybe your frames / lenses are thicker than average?

This is a good LL article on optical VFs, but the principle is the same.
