string is beside your face. You may want to draw to your chin instead. That
way you can have the string in front of your eye. This makes a shift to the
right for a right handed shooter. This will also 'get around' the glasses
Question: What do you use to aim? As an example when I shoot I have the
string lined up with the point of the arrow to where I need to be aiming on
the target. From what I sense of your shooting you have the point of the
arrow but no string in your view when you are aiming. This is not a bad
thing. But you might find it easier to aim with the string in your view when
you aim. It can provide a more consistent release point.

It's not like you have to push any of us very hard, though!
