monocular vs binocular with extreme eye dominance

Discussion in 'General Hunting' started by kayak, Oct 22, 2017.

  1. I have always been right eye dominant. In recent years I have become even more so due to macular degeneration in my left eye. With this in mind, what are the pros and cons of using binoculars vs a monocular?

    I use a vortex 8x monocular. I like it because it takes up much less room. I just put it in a pocket of my hunting vest. I bought it mainly for squirrel hunting with my dog but now find myself using it for everything.

    Monocular, because IMO there are no binoculars that would compensate for macular degeneration in the opposite eye.

    I do exactly the same thing. I really like the compact size.

    What he said,cause you can set one side of the binoculars to match the other eye and then lock it in.then all you have to do is just adjust your zoom clarity.go with the binos for sure imo.
