I wanted some help on best setting up an eye glass mounted rear view mirror - specifically the standard Take-A-Look.
Background: I have on again off again used this mirror in the past year. Longest stretch was about 4wks. I couldn't get used to it, for several reasons, but in this past week of trying it again (I try over and over again as I see great benefit) I think my reason is set up.
What I find is I bend the main stem so the mirror is toward the top left of my view thru my perscription glasses. But the problem I have is that in order to see over my shoulder I have two choices:
1. Bend mirror so far up that it is partially obsured by the frame of my glasses, not giving a clear view, even with a slight head tilt upward.
2. Sit upright everytime I want to glance in mirror. This motion I find very disruptive and why I don't use it when its there. If I'm gonna sit this upright I may as well turn and look behind me for a much better view.
I just can't find a comfortable middle ground between 1 and 2. Is this normal, what should I try? I am really hoping for a way to adjust it so I can keep my body position still and only need a slight tilt of the head for a clear glance behind me.
(I'd like to keep this thread primarily to using this type of mirror - there are several older threads on what the best kind of mirror is, threads on how to use a mirror in traffic, etc. Search and you will find them if you want to ressurect those 'debates')
