Eye relieve is relative to the magnification and size of your binoculars. The higher the magnification, the shorter the eye relief. Same for objective size, the smaller the lens, the shorter the eye relief.
My first suggestion for anyone with glasses is to try to focus the binoculars without glasses. Depending on how bad your eyes are, you can usually get away with it. If you must wear glasses, you will need to fold down the eyecups on the binoculars and get your glasses right on the eyepiece. The glasses then make up the difference, to give you optimal eye relief.
If you are using glasses, then the longer the eye relief, the better.
Please let me know if there is anything else we can do for you.
