It realy bugs me that the focus for all binoculars is on the right eyepice:mad: Does anyone know of ways a left eye dominate peson can use binoculars?

It shouldn't matter with binos due to each eye having its own "optic" so to speak.
I always use the focusing ring to bring the left eye into focus and then adjust the right eyepiece to match. Or is there something else you want to do?
;) See Skinny's answer. It shouldn't matter which eye is dominant for his technique to work.

I`am extremly left eye dominate, since i don`t really see out the left eye anyway, i just use the right eyepiece as a monocular, lol. But then i don`t spend hours glassing either. I will also just turn them over, i you don`t mind your nose rubbing the center.
Take Skinny's advice!! Thats how it should be done and you'll have no problems. You also need to do that when shopping for new binos during testing....testing them while focused for someone elses eyes is worthless.
No need to turn them over or anything else goofy.

Yes, as skinny and jj said, adjusting the focus is the best, unless they belong to someone else.............

unless they belong to someone else............. Then I would coat the eyepice with magic marker.;) :D
