From experience I can say that you are quite right about retaining adequate long range vision.
But without my multi-focals I had no chance of reading the instruments; eg speedo.

Thanks to recent addition of a new intra-ocular lens in my left eye, I can once again see my instruments without the aid of spectacles.
