You are completely right on your diagnosis of my shooting -- my eye sits extremely high above the rib, and I am generally completely consciously unaware of the gun when shooting.  And, yes, I have somewhat of a central eye dominance. I do a lot to try to study how the eye works in relation to shooting sporting, but it's rare to find somebody who knows both fields! From the World of Sporting Clays

One of the things that I have learned during my career is that when I want to learn about something, I prefer to go to someone who knows what the hell is going on. That's why when I want to know something about vision and how vision relates to the shooting sports, I go to Dr. Rich Colo of Connecticut. Dr. Colo is fast becoming a respected source of information for vision and the shooting sports. From the World of Skeet

The only eye-dominance test I have seen that is an accurate predictor of an individual's tendency to cross-fire is one developed by Richard Colo, O.D., Suffield CT. From the World of Trap

See Your Way to Better Shooting

Most shooters usually come to me because they are having trouble seeing the target.  In most cases, there is a problem that falls into one or both of these categories:  Eye Health and/or Eye Function.  My job is to evaluate these areas thoroughly and, with that information, put the shooter in the best position to have visual control of the target.  Visual control is the vehicle that allows the shooter to “let” the shot happen rather than “make” the shot happen.
