I am left handed and have been shooting shotgun right handed, eye doctor says my eyes are close to even, so I thought I would try left handed and its feels a lot smoother, but the more I shoot in a session, my right eye starts to take over as I get tired, any tricks I can use to help my left eye?

Some folks stick a dot in the center the lense of the off eye. Eye glass lense in mean.

You could try a blinder over your right eye. Problem is, if your right eye is taking over, you're probably right eye dominant and should shoot with that side. I'm the opposite way; I am right handed but left eye dominant, so I shoot left handed. I used to just use my left eye and hold my weapon right handed, but I forced myself to switch and became a better shot as a result.

I'm a Southpaw who's been left eye dominant my whole life...until recently (within the past year and a half. Seventy years one way and then POW I wake up with what's called"central vision". Suddenly I can't hit a clay pigeon suspended on a string.

Chris Batha introduced me to a thingie called "shotspot" (spelling?). It almost immediately solved the problem and I returned to my former lousy shooting self. However, I can hit clay pigeons tethered to a string every time and Chris is working with me on the rest.

It's a small seemingly clear dime sized lens on the right lens of my shooting glasses and now, with the dot in place, my eye dominance problem disappears. I don't know where you get them or what they cost, but you could probably Google it. I'm guessing having a friend to help you find the right spot on the lens to place the dot would be helpful. The dot appears to be some kind of mylar and is applied like decal and can be moved until you get it just right.

I don't remember the cost, but it was chump change and a lot cheaper than having a special lens made for my shooting glasses.
