Yeah, I don't have much of a choice. I have had 20/200 vision in my right eye since I was in elementary school, needless to say, I shoot (cameras & rifles) with my left eye.

The generally accepted view is that a left hand folks will be have a dominate left eye and right handers will be right eyed. Anything else is called cross-dominance with dire predictions in pop-physiology sources of physical/mental capabilities of anyone so oriented. Oh well, I guess there's ample evidence here that's not so.

I'm left-handed but right eyed and so I shoot (cameras and firearms) right-handed but about the only things I really can't do right handed is write and throw a ball. Most tools I use whatever mode make the most sense.

From what I've read, cross dominance is accepted as a rare, but good thing, and better for athletes, such as baseball players, golfers, etc. (although this has generally been disproven).
