Close-up/diopter for early Rolleis?

Was there ever a solution for close-up lenses/diopters for the early Rolleiflex/Rolleicords that don't have bayonets?

Yes: Rolleiflex Proxar 28.5 in +1 or +2. There's also a corresponding Rolleipar to correct parallax.

Thanks - I looked around a bit and found out about the Proxars (sometimes "Proxare") but I had no idea there was a push-on Rolleipar too. It would make things easier in that case.

After a bit more research I think I am getting there ... but does the Rolleipar have to be used together with the Proxar on the viewing lens (as it is with the slightly younger Rolleiparkeil bayonet parts)?

Or is it to be used differently? I have been looking around but haven't found any answers or manuals describing this.
