Could the windshield wiper mechanism be the issue?

The driver's side windshield wiper can never clean the section that's exactly at my eye height. Doesn't matter if the blades are new or not.
Could this be a problem with the mechanism, such as a worn spring or somesuch?
Or there's the possibility that I have such strong vision that I've warped the windshield. ha ha

Im looking at the strong vision...kidding :)

Linkage is loose or broken

There is one motor to run both wipers and for some reason the linkage that runs from the motor the wipers has come loose. Need to remove the wipers, air vent below the wiper arms to get to the linkage. {If you aren't sure how to do it go to a good shop you trust
