    Default the eyes have lost

    Ok, so I was reading a new archery book....blah, blah, long story short. I was doing the predominant eye test and have discovered that my predominant eye has changed from my strong right eye to my weak left eye. I shoot with both eyes open and release with my right hand. I don't have any real problems. Has anyone one heard of this?

    Yes, actually it is common for the dominant eye to switch to the "better" eye if something were to happen. You can actually test it out on yourself, do a dominant eye test but "hinder" your regular dominant eye in some way like placing a finger directly in front or looking through something opaque. You can almost feel the "switch".

    Don't know how old you are, but it's said that one's eyes sort of equalize. So maybe what you're seeing. Like I'm dominant left eye, but shot a bow right handed so long to the point I don't have a problem.

    hen I was in my teens I found my eye switched sides. I had been shooting guns and bow since birth and had to rereach myself a new habit. I am right handed and am forced to close my left eye at all times.....

    Around age 40, one of life's crueler tricks happens. It called macular degeneration, when your vision "evens" out, both eyes get weaker, and lose their ability to focus. See you optomitrist.

    Thanks for the warning 4x5. What else can I expect to happen at the big 40? Was actually thinking about some laser surgery ($$$). I hate wearing glasses to shoot/hunt. Sonny, you gotta watch out for Hutch, he is always trying to get people to buy pink strings and such. I dunno about that boy sometimes. I even heard he took his bow to Lowes looking for a set of big antlers.
