Why do many shooters close one eye?
They do it to overcome double vision, ghost images or cross-eye dominance - all of which can lead to serious accuracy problems.
Many shooters are affected by cross-eye dominance in which the dominant eye is opposite to the shooting hand, eg. strong shooting hand is right side, but dominant eye is left side. The purpose of the Magic Eye Dot, when applied to the lens of the shooting glasses over the offending eye, is to subtly prevent the eye from focusing, while maintaining depth perception and peripheral vision.
Dot diameter: 20mm
In package: One sheet of 20 dots, various colors plus 2 rectangular strips - see product image.
Standing in front of a mirror, place your shooting glasses on and look straight ahead. Simply place a dot on your lens, to cover your iris and pupil area. If your right hand is your strong shooting hand, you will place the dot on your left lens, and vice versa.
Several color dots are included, to get as close a match as possible to your lens color.
The dots are thin, sticky vinyl that can be lifted off the lens and moved or reused. If this is done multiple times, the edges of the sticker will start to crease. But it's definitely possible to move/re-use/re-position.
Which is your dominant eye? Here’s a simple test:
Extend your hands in front of your face. Place them together to form a small, triangular opening with your thumbs at the bottom. Using both eyes, look through the opening and focus on a distant object. Maintain your focus. Now close one eye. If the object disappears from the opening, your closed eye is dominant. If it remains, your open eye is dominant.
I have a strong cross dominance and tried the dots for the first time today. The results were amazing. Score greatly improved. I was going to give it a four due to cost but so far the improvement was worth it.
what I like if you are a little careful with your lens cleaning, the dot will stay in place. Just used mine first time in a hot, sweaty shoot. even though the glasses got sweaty, the dot stuck in place fine. Does seem to help with dominance issue. good product.
these dot's are fantastic , easy to use and no more ghosting of the barrel from my left eye
A nice variety of colors. Easy to use. Does the trick to block my dominant eye.
The dots arrived in my mail box practically the next day.
Price was great, same amount I bought them for 5+ years ago.
They are not easy to find anymore. Great on Pilla shooting lenses.
