I wore those for years. My "far" correction isn't much, but helps when driving. My near is crap-- in driving, I need to look through the bottom of the glasses just to see the speedometer clearly!
Some people get used to bifocals when outdoors -- I never wore them enough outside, so I was always misjudging distances when my eyes went from the top to bottom. In outdoor lighting, I can usually see well enough without the glasses, even a few feet away, as when I am looking for handholds. That's a pleasant surprise, because I can't read much of anything without bifocals (or those cheap reader you buy at the supermarket).
