Soft Contacts Vision Clarity and Ghosting Question

I wear RGP contacts due to how severe my prescription is (-15.0 in both eyes). I have been told I very little astigmatism in both eyes, "negligible" was the exact word used by my optometrist. He has been trying to get me into soft contacts lately because he can't get the fit right with the RGP contacts for 4 years now.

The problem with the softs are that I see a ghost image of all lights and reflective material just slightly north of the original image. Also, I can read the 20/20 lines in the office with the soft but once I go outside I can not read speed limit signs and stop signs like I can with the RGP lenses, not even close. Can someone please tell me what's going on here?
