Side view mirrors

I think I have the original side view mirrors on my 69 Impala.

Problem is the very narrow FOV, it's like they are magnifying the image and I can't see anything out of them.

Do they make a reasonably priced repro of anything that would fit the style that has a wide FOV?

The rear view mirror had the same problem, I bought a repro that I thought would be better but nope. (well tbh it was really a repro then)
I solved that by putting this "wide" accessory mirror on top of the old one. But what can I do with the side mirrors?

You can buy an after market stick on convex mirror to widen your view angle but at the expense of depth of field.

Thanks Dave, that's an option. But I was hoping to maybe find some mirrors with a different style also, a bit more teardrop like.
