Streaking Windshield Wipers

OK, this is driving me crazy lately: the driver side windshield wiper leaves a broad streak right smack in the middle of my field of vision. I've changed the blades, cleaned the windshield thoroughly, and tried RainX, to no avail.

The attached pictures aren't the best in the world, but you can kind of see the problem.

What gives?! Anyone know how to solve this, or what's causing it?

I'm speculating that the tension spring that pushes the wiper arm against the windshield is probably just losing tension due to age/use, but if that's the problem, is there an adjustment or fix for it? Surely I'm not the only one having this problem!
