Not with everyone. I'm right handed and left eye dominant...I tried to convert/force right eye dominance and had all kinds of problems from migraines to loss of artistic abilities.Its simply a matter of the brain using the eye that can see to focus. When you leave both eyes open the eye that is focusing gets most of the brains attention. I figured out early how to tell one eye to look one way and then tell the other eye to look around. It is a freaky thing to watch, and very stressful to the eyes but it can be done.
I admire how you have overcome that. It should just motivate the rest of us to be better. I find that an open mind is better than an open eye.Not with everyone.

Some of us are eye dominant because of brain dominance...it's not a matter of eye focus. It's a matter of how yer brain works best. Eye dominance is not always arbitrary or training. Sometimes it's ordained by brain function. I shoot with both eyes open and run a right hand action left handed to get my left eye behind the optic. It's not optimal for running a precision rifle but it works well enough.
The plus is that in running handguns both hands/both eyes work just fine so I can shoot two pistols, one in each hand, with no problem. Both hands coordinate with my dominant eye.
There is, the strength of an eye's dominance can be weak or strong and can even change over time.Is there such thing as barely dominant eye?? Im left handed but shoot right handed and seem to be right eye dominant. But when dry firing at home I try both eyes open and my left eye wants to grab and I lose my right eye in the scope. So I swapped to left handed position with my left eye looking through the scope and both eyes opened worked better that way.
