I recently was out hunting for the first time since I started wearing glasses.  When I was at the blind, I had a hard time focusing in with my scope.   My question is: Is there a particular scope that I should check in to for people who wear glasses?

Are they progressive bifocal lenses? If so, you will need to move a round to find the sweet spot.
If not, you need to adjust the focus.

I wear tri-focals and I just can't use them with a scoped rifle.  At my last visit to my eye doctor I asked about single lens glasses for shooting. He suggested that I try contact lenses. They work great for shooting.  You might want to consider trying them.  The disposable type are pretty cheap.

You might do well to consider a scope with a fast-focus adjustable eyepiece.  This makes it easy to use both with or without your glasses (which can get fogged, misplaced or broken).
 
I wear glasses for distance vision, and have fast-focus eyepieces on all my riflescopes.  My moment of clarity came when I was invited to take part in an informal target contest.  I had my rifle (with a fixed focus scope), but my glasses were back in the cabin.  It would have been an easy win.
 
For safety's sake, I use binoculars (and not the scope) for spotting game that isn't close enough to clearly identify.  Binoculars also have fast-focus capability.

I agree with Longhunter, get something with the ability to change the focus.  I am farsighted and wear by bifocals even when out hunting.  Adjusting the focus is not an ideal solution, as I sometines find I need to look over the edge of my glasses.  Contacts don't work well for me so I do the best I can with glasses.
