Recently I went for a preliminary eye exam required for having LASIK surgery done. My surgery is next Tuesday. Anyway, it was determined that my stronger distance eye is my left, and it is also dominant. We did a little test and I actually cocked my head to sight with my left eye. Now, whenever I shoot I sight with my right eye. Have you guys ever heard of somebody who is right handed sighting with their left eye? I've never paid close enough attention to notice which eyes fellas were using. I also wonder if I'd be a better shot using my left eye.

Well, I'm not switching shooting hands, but I bet it would be really easy to shoot from a modified weaver position with my head cocked a bit.

Being right handed and left eye dominant, or vice versa("cross dominance"), is a relatively common occurence. I have been told by two opthamologists that LASIK surgery will not change one's dominant eye. I am cross dominant and have adapted by moving my gun slightly to the left and my head slightly to the right, using a weaver stance. How one corrects for this is dependent on shooting stance and body type. However, you should be able to make adequate adaptations.
