Guess I was just lucky, my Dad taught me to shoot with both eyes open.
Works really well for me, it's as though you can see through your sights,(superimposed) and see the whole target as well.

right hand, left eye

When learning to shoot, which seems like an everchanging process, I was advised to shoot both eyes open. I'm right handed and near sighted, more so in my left than in my right so with glasses off, the right eye image is very clear. With glasses on, which is how I practice, I seem to recall being told that I was left eye dominant by the same fellow who passed me sage advice that day. I'm not really sure if I am since I didn't really understand how to shoot with both eyes at the time and just had to play with my vision and what I saw. I essentially train to shift dominance to my right eye when I get a sight picture with pistol. It gets more natural with time and on a good day yields very pleasing results.
You have the right to be offended.

This thread really helped me. Reading all your advice gives me something to try next range time.
