Nose bridge and correction

    I have pretty high myopia (-9.25 in both eyes), with a slight
    astigmatism. I'm wearing progressive-lens glasses.

    As with all the glasses I've worn for more than the past 15 years (once
    my eyesight worsened to a certain point), I don't feel I get crisp
    distance vision. I have a narrow nose with a high bridge, and glasses
    touch only my nose and ears; they're about .25 inch from my eyebrows
    and .5 inch from my cheeks. Could that be the reason I'm not getting a
    good correction?

    I've mentioned this to every eye doctor (I've been seen by both
    ophthalmologists and optometrists over the years), but no one has ever
    done anything about it.

    I'm due for a new prescription (I'm 46, and I think I need a stronger
    near-vision correction), and I'd love to have a pair of glasses with
    which I can see really well. I'd appreciate any help!
