  • My dominant eye is ...

    So I've established my dominant eye is my left. But what does that actually tell me? Can I use that info to improve my game?

        If you start trying to cue under that eye you will probably mess up your stance something rotten !

          Just to give some info...the'dominant eye' theory came about from Joe Davis who cued under his left eye, but he explained that he was almost blind in his right eye and he got the added bonus of being more compact in his set-up. Most right handed players will sight with their left eye whether it is dominant or not but in makes no difference for as JRC says, just use one way consistently and your brain will adapt quite quickly. Ensure your set-up is correct and compact.

            There are a lot of players who cue one side of the chin or the other but I don't think they are choosing to do that, I think their eyes just place their head there on the way down as that's how they see the cue on the line, so it's a natural position not a chosen one. Just my thoughts on it.

              I always understand it to be due to how your head aligns, it's not really anything to do with eyes. Your dominant eye does not pull you to sight with it, as you can sight with either or both eyes. With the cue under the chin you can still see the angle. Really don't worry about which is dominant or not.

                I have no idea which eye is dominant for me and I do ok. Don't over-complicate the game it's hard enough as it is.

                  The best advice on here in awhile. DON'T OVER-COMPLICATE
