In an experimental test of the relationship between eye dominance and monocular acuity, 20 observers (10 consistent right-eyed and 10 consistent left-eyed) were exposed to a systematic degradation of the vision in the dominant eye while they performed eye dominance tests. This was accomplished by placing plus lenses of various strengths in front of the dominant eye. It was found that natural eye dominance behaviors are highly resistant to change and do so only in the presence of very large refractive asymmetries.
