Last year, I was shooting with a #3 clarifier and 10 power lens and had one of my worst indoor years in some time, though not entirely the fault of the 10 power lens. So I switched to a 6 power lens, keeping the #3 clarifier for my old eyes. I simply can't shoot with both eyes open. I've tried and tried, but it just doesn't work. Most of the great shooters seem to keep both eyes open, so that is probably what's recommended. If you can, keep both eyes open. If you can't, don't let it worry you.
I am using a 6 power lens & yellow #1 clarifier & have always shot with both eyes open. When you close 1 eye you will loose the amount of time that your aiming eye will focus
with out the target begin to blur on you. Even if you are opposite eye dominate you should still shoot with both eyes open, might need to use a sight blinder, hat blinder, or
piece of tape on dominate eye lens & that way it won't take over your other eye.
