    No, it'll set you back years. Do what's natural to you

    Try to have the cue under both eyes at the same time. Or cue under the left eye, then as you pull the cue back, bring it to your right eye, then as you deliver, go to centre chin.

    Get down into your stance and address the tip of the cue to the middle of the cue ball. Close one eye, then the other, now which eye is showing your cue all the way to the tip at centre cue ball ? It's normally just one eye that puts the tip to the cue ball, the brain subconsciously shuts off the other one and only uses the information it needs for the job in question, one eye to sight down a straight line to the cue ball, both eyes to the object ball for depth perception and judgement of angles.
    You don't have to think about this and don't overide it as not any two people are exactly the same and your 'vision centre', the place between your eyes where the cue is placed, is the best place for your brain to get the information it needs and that's why you subconsciously put it there.

    I have a very strong dominant left eye and my cue is directly under it when I play. I have experimented with closing my right eye half way down into my stance to ensure I address the cue ball only with my left eye to get it dead centre of the cue ball, the result being that the cue is directly under my left eye just the same as it is when I have both eyes open; but when I look up to the object ball it feels wrong and I miss 75% of shots when I address the cue ball this way, 100% of long shots, so something isn't quite right and goes to show that you shouldn't mess around with what comes naturally.

    Most men have good natural hand/eye, most women don't, but in some cases this isn't so, and if this is the case with you then snooker either isn't your game or you're getting off the line as you get down into your stance, which is more likely.

    Not many Pro's cue under their Dominant Eye, and Terry was very interesting on this subject. I'll try and dig out the posts\threads, when I have time...
