Eye Dominance

Eye Dominance is a phenomenon that affects many people from birth or can appear over time, especially with the onset of middle age, tiredness, variations in light and a variety of other factors. The effect is often not identified by shooters – or indeed coaches. The impact on shooting effectively, even at short range, is dramatic and even more so at long-range targets.

That impact is not always recognised. How many syndicate members drop out or give up shooting through frustration at not being able to hit or cleanly kill quarry despite it being ‘an easy shot’ and having the skills and resources to do so?

A real inhibitor to effective shooting is the fact that your friends, fellow shooters or relatives do not know they have a cross-dominant eye. Even if they did not have a dominance problem before, remember it can be acquired, especially as we get older.  Once identified it can be easy to correct.
