I also wear bifocals and had a hell-of-a time trying to weld with my glasses
on.  So I'd take them off, but still couldn't see too well.  Then I 
got a 2x insert
for my helmet, and that helped a lot.  I still wasn't wearing my glasses.

Then one day I was trying to help a friend learn to weld, and had my glasses
on, when I lowered my mask.  WOW, with the 2x and my glasses I could actually
see for the first time - in a long time.

I also have had to have a pair of glasses made so I can read the computer
screen.  I haven't tried them under my helmet yet, but I think that might help
