Are there any folks out there who could tell us whether it's possible to see the entire field of view using glasses?

Thanks,
John

I have the B-85 (20 x 85) and the eye relief is listed as 17mm. They are fine with glasses as long as the eyecup is rolled down. Eye relief is listed as 16mm on the B-63. My glasses don't touch the eyecups on the 85 so I think you should be all right. I havn't actually tried the B- 63 though.

Hi John,

I took my SV 15 x 63's out to test for this. They are marked "Long Eye Relief." I checked it on a tree bare eyed and then with glasses. I was able to see everything with glasses that I could without. My glasses were pressed lightly against the fold down eyecups.

Thank you for asking this. I almost always view bare eyed but now I know I could use these binocs with my glasses.

Addendum to prior post. I had reported that the focusing on these is fairly tight. Today they were not tight, but set just right. Maybe it's the 75 F vs 50 F.
