Rear view mirror visibility

Im 66 and I cant seem to position the seat appropriately such that my right view out the windshield isnt blocked by the mirror. To see right of center, I need to look under the mirror. Obviously not ideal, but one of those things Id surely work out with time. But nope, its still an issue. Any tall guys out there with similar issues? Any recs? Thanks.

I am 6’4” and have no real issues, but then I use this important rule...

I keep my seat high almost to the point of my head hitting the roof liner. I also have an escort 360 hung by the mirror. The only issue I have is being first in line at red light and having to look up, but then wait too long and some courteous driver from behind will let me know.

I'm only 5-10 and I like to sit low and reclined so definitely no issues with the mirror obstructing my view. I do find that the A-pillar and side mirror create a huge blind spot to the left. Taking left turns when you have an island to go around is interesting, I have to look at where it is before I start the turn and hope I judge it correctly because I can't see it until it's outside my window.
