Much discussion has been had off list, but to summarize:
Many people recommended contact lenses as it eliminates the whole eyeglass issue but for the sunglasses.
Many suggestions for true bifocals (sunglasses or non-tinted) as they are a little better than progressives with binoculars and tend to be cheaper which would be good for field work.
Everyone's eyes and glasses are different. I have 3 pairs of bins and with all of them, I have to mash my glasses onto my face. 15m, 17mm, and 20mm and as far as I can tell that 3mm either is measured wrong or doesn't quite make a difference for me. So it's expensive binoculars (one time purchase) or contacts (recurring purchases) for me I suppose.
