Eskimo rolling

I am trying to learn how to Eskimo roll. I have tried once and got stuck under the kayak and had to get out of the kayak underwater before I drowned. It seems quite difficult to get back up and I have studied the technique. I intend to keep trying.

Can one get back up, by rolling, if they don't have any roll momentum left or does one have to have momentum?

I wear glasses with croakies to keep them on. Will Eskimo rolling knock them off?
