What is eye dominance?

Even though you think you’re looking at something with both eyes equally, what’s actually happening is, your brain is taking more input from one eye than the other. Everyone has a dominant eye, which is better for aiming (just ask anyone who’s done shooting or archery and they’ll know all about it). The brain favours one eye in telling it how far away something is and where you are in relation to it. So, when you’re identifying your target in sport, this needs to be taken into account. Whilst our eyes are meant to work together as a team, one eye will dominate and more accurately provide information about the location of objects. Having binocular vision (two eyed vision), helps us with locating objects in space and judging distances. In spite of this, one eye will dominate.
