Easy hit - anyone use it?

Has anyone tried using Easy hit to help fix eye dominance problems shooting with both eyes open? How did you like it?

I find these types of sights a distraction. One of my P-guns came with a standard white and a red glow sight installed. After giving the red sight a few rounds, I switched back to the white one. All I want to use a sight for is to verify my mount, after that my focus is on the target, not the sight. You may be the type who isn't distracted by a glow sight and won't let it lure you into shifting your focus from the target to the barrel.

Edit: Since I don't use my shotguns as rifles (shooting at ground targets), my first thoughts go to wing shooting. If you're thinking about a glow-type sight for fixed targets, where your focus is the front sight, then they might be great.

As a right handed shooter with cross eye dominance, I would see the left side of the barrel, which distracted me from the target. Oddly enough, the Easy Hit kept my eyes focused on the target...after about six months I was able to remove it and now use just the bead.
