eye dominance

After several laser procedures on my right eye (I'm right handed) which has always been my dominant eye, I've been frustrated at how lousey I've been shooting lately. I mean really bad.

I think my dominant eye has changed to my left.

When I hold up a pencil at arm's length I see two and closing one eye and then the other seems to switch from day to day which eye is dominant.

Any thoughts?:barf:

Have you tried shooting with just your right eye open? I shoot with an All-American who started to have eye troubles. His solution was to call for the target with both eyes open, as soon as he picked it up, he closed his left eye.

I second the new appointment AND what Zippy's friend did. I call with both eyes open and as the gun hits my cheek, I close my off eye which now has NO contact in it so my dominant eye , also my shooting eye, can take over

learn how to aim a shotgun with both eyes open. sounds like your pencil/pen trick shows that one eye open that varies is you non-dominate eye, I'd have to bet...
