I'm very left eye dominant, cue directly under it, and standing in my boxer position gives me the same left sided view and means I step into the shot without any twist of the body or turn of the head as I get down.

    Thanks for all the replies! I doubt this debate will ever be solved but I find all the different theories fascinating.
    Since I made this post I have played under my left eye(Non dominant) and my consistency has gone way up. I'm playing much more confidently which in turn leads to a better standard.

    I do have my own theory as to why this works for me and may or may not work for others.
    I believe it has to do with aiming while standing behind the shot. If I get down with my cue centre chin or under my dominant eye I feel I use the eyes too much when cueing which can cause me to push the cue off line, whereas If i play under the left eye I do all my sighting behind the ball and then when I get down to the shot I do all my cueing with my right arm. I'm finding it difficult to explain exactly what I mean but it has brought my game back to a place i'm pretty happy with at this stage so I'm planning on sticking with it and see where we go.
