VIEWS FOR 20/20 by Dr. Mark Skowron ARE YOU RIGHT-EYED OR LEFT-EYED? Much in the same way that a person might favor one hand for writing, most of us also have a "dominant" eye. It is not necessarily that one eye sees better than the other, but that there is a preference for one eye. With this in mind, the dominant eye is the one that provides the most input and relays the most information to the visual cortex of the brain. It is interesting to note that eye dominance does not necessarily correlate to hand dominance. There are a number of tests with which to determine the dominant eye. This information may be of special interest to athletes or photographers who want to improve their performance. If a strong degree of dominance is not apparent in a dominant eye test, it's more likely a person has mixed ocular dominance, where one eye is dominant for certain functions or tasks, and the other eye is dominant at different times. For all your eye care needs, please stop by SKOWRON EYE CARE. We have been providing personal, cutting-edge eye care for patients in the Western suburbs since 1983. At Skowron Eye Care, your 20/20 vision is our mission. P.S. The term "cross dominance" refers to having a dominant eye on the opposite side of the dominant hand, which can make target shooting difficult. SKOWRON EYE CARE 370 N.
