Vision research: Losing sight of eye dominance

  title={Vision research: Losing sight of eye dominance},
  author={David P Carey},
  journal={Current Biology},
Most people prefer to use their right eye for viewing. New evidence reveals that this dominance is much more plastic than that for one hand or foot: it changes from one eye to the other depending on angle of gaze. Remarkably, sighting dominance depends on the hand being directed towards the visual target.
