I've gone throught a similar experiment this last winter. I had my left lens fabricated as my normal trifocal and the right lens set for 74mm (length to front sight -- short arms) and no bi/trifocal. I haven't spent a lot of time with the glasses off the range, but so far, having the left lens as normal correction, I seem to have the best of both worlds without too much discomfort. The primary disadvantage for me is that while the front sight is very clear, without my prescripted correction, the target isn't as clear. But it works well out to 25yds and that's most of my shooting....longer distances are typically with red dot or scoped revolvers.

I was pleased to find that in Florida glasses were noticeably cheaper than in my home state of Iowa. My frames, lens and exam was $84. Please keep us informed on well you're able to adapt to the head movement. Frequently that type of situation becomes much less noticeable with time.
