Headlight washer jets

It's that time of year when these are getting a lot of use. Done a few long motorway trips this week and noticed they both work well but seem to clear an area from appx middle of light unit outwards. It's an even pattern both sides. Wondered if that was normal as the small lense in each unit ( nearest the kidney grill and one I think only comes on with high beam) is not receiving as much of a blast. The larger lense and turn indicator area get cleaned nicely.

Wondered if I needed to check nozzle alignment (if there is any) but then how do you adjust as the nozzles only pop out when in use. Must be a way to manually make them appear?

Not a big issue I was just cleaning car and noticed this but couldn't see a simple way to check it myself. Might have to get someone else to blast the jets whilst I watch from outside.
