It took me a couple of weeks of using binoculars with glasses on (and no eye relief on the binos), but now that I've gotten used to it, I find that it's pretty comfortable and doesn't affect my ability to use the binoculars. I use progressive lenses on my glasses.
Getting the glasses dirty has been a recurring theme for me anyways, since I have to wear them while looking through my camera viewfinder. I now keep a supply of Zeiss lens wipes (highly recommended) in my pockets, and that takes care of the glasses getting dirty.
