You can shut an eye for 10 sec then open it. Do the same with the other count how much time does it takes for the eye that was closed to unblure. The one that takes less time is your stronger eye.
Stare at an object a few feet away. Cover one eye, then cover the alternate eye. The eye that reveals the least movement of the image, compared to your view with both eyes open, is the dominant eye.
Look at a Vertical line with both eyes open and place your finger in front of your chosen position so the finger covers the line
Now close one eye then open it and then close the other eye
The strong eye will hold the same view as when you had both eyes open
The view with the weaker eye will have moved your finger to one side of the vertical line
Just cover one eye and try to read something and then the other. You should be able to tell even if there is a slight difference.
Hold one finger up in front of your face. Look at it with each eye. If your finger seems to move to the right hand side your right eye is stronger. If it moves to the left , the left eye is stronger.
Learning and Teaching
well you can do the above mentioned, but the best thing is to go to a doctor to find out. most of the differences in eyesight are only slight.
have sumone hold a paper up with writing and cover one eye and read it and then cover the other eye and read it. what ever one is best is your stronger eye
Most of us don't have a stronger eye. We may have slight refractive differences, making one eye see a little better. Eye dominance is what everyone is describing. How to determine your dominant eye....finger, paper with hole....that stuff.
Both eyes should see about the same. Both should be around 20/20 or 1.0 depending on the way it's written in your part of the world.
You can tell by seeing if you can see better than one eye.
There's a quick test.
You hold one finger up in front of your eyes.
Then you close your right eye and look straight forward.
Don't focus on the finger.
Then keep opening and closing the right eye. Do the same with your left eye.
You will notice that the finger moves when you open and close the eye on which you are testing.
There will be a difference.
The less the finger moves from side to side the stronger is the eye.
Normally, the difference doesn't matter and sometimes it is connected to right or lefthandedness.
Have fun! ;)
Why so serious?
COver each eye and do the eye test. See which one you can see more with.
Yeah close one eye then look at something relatively close like a few metres and see which eye has a better and clearer picture.
there is a way to find this out, the method is used for archery. this has to be done standing and either a mirror or someone else is needed. make both your hands completely flat and pull out the thumb so it looks like an 'L', then shape them like this (try to make the hole as small as possible, but big enough to see through): http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o163/hayderhoozeer/Picture4.jpg, http://i120.photobucket.com/albums/o163/hayderhoozeer/Picture5.jpg
then, whilst keeping your hands like this, put your hands down. bring them back up to eye level and try to focus on something through the hole, now get someone or use a mirror to see which eye is visible through the hole, this eye is the strongest.
this works because when there is a small gap, the brain makes you use your strongest eye to look.
