If you are concerned with seeing behind you, I think you should be looking at a helmet mirror.

And your head is not in motion? We are opposite, I tried a glasses mounted mirror and found myself kept moving my head around to see the correct spot behind me. I also looked at it too much since it was in my field of vision.

Only my drop bar bike has a mirror on it and it is at the bottom of the bars. I prefer this mirror position.
