Why is the target always shot with one eye closed, there is amazing science behind it

When we aim at something, we often close one eye. But have you ever wondered why? It turns out, there's a scientific reason behind this behavior.

The Marvel of Dominant Eyes

Each person has one dominant eye, which sends stronger signals to the brain compared to the non-dominant eye. Moreover, the focus of the dominant eye is usually better than that of the non-dominant one.

This is why, when aiming, our brain trusts and keeps open the dominant eye, while we naturally close the non-dominant one. Our brain prompts us to do so for optimal focus.

Challenges of Keeping Both Eyes Open

It's not impossible to aim with both eyes open. However, it's much more difficult and often leads to missed targets. The distance between our eyes means that having both open can prevent proper focus on the target, resulting in inaccurate aim.

Which Eye Should Be Closed for Better Aim?

The dominant eye varies among individuals. While most people have their dominant eye on the right, left-handed individuals might have it on the left. Therefore, when aiming, most people close their non-dominant eye. However, for left-handed individuals, it could be the opposite.

Additionally, the stability of your hands and shoulders plays a significant role. Keeping your hands steady and shoulders relaxed ensures a better aim. Understanding these nuances can significantly improve your accuracy when aiming, whether you're shooting a basketball, taking a photograph, or playing a game of darts.
