Prism, Pupillary Distance and Optical Center?

I have worn a 1-1.5 BI, Right eye for 35 years.
I have worn the same Progressive,  Hoya Summit CD for 15 years.
Pupil distance is (apparently) 30 right and 31.5, total 62.
This last time the lenses were made by a different lab through a different optician, the lens don't work.
This time they were the highest index and too high a seg height and + diopter. Then dropped the seg height took out the + and  they still don't work.
I can't find the "sweet spot" in the right lens, unless I move the right lens to the left.
I say there is something wrong in the Pupil Distance and/or Optical Center, they say otherwise.
Any words of wisdom to take to the optician?
Thanks in advance.

See if you can get your money back and go to the old optician. As we have outlined before there are over a dozen variables in each pair of glasses so even if the RX, and PD are the same they may not feel the same.

Think of it liike this you have a closet full of shoes more or less the same size but each feels differently on your feet.

Those were my thoughts.
I was told by both the ophthalmologist and the optician that the glasses were right and I was wrong. Both said that OC and PD would not affect the lens, yeah, right.
I was hoping for a citation to be able to show them.
The last optician was not without problems nor the one before that.
It seems as though a prism compounds the problems.
My prescription is minimal, so, I don't "see" all the problems in getting a pair to work right. It always takes two to get one. What a waste and aggravation.

The ultimate "fall back" position would be to ask that an exact copy of your old RX be put in your new frames at no charge to you.

The RX is really no different, just the execution... same rimless frame, but new bridge, same shape...

Then you would have two pairs of glasses, a spare for trips. That is all my comments.
