Yes: Most driving hazards come from the left side so you would have less problem with right sided blindness. You might be centrally blind and have good peripheral vision preserved. If totally blind parking would be a problem. Insurance companies, which are really sensitized to these things, do not increase premiums for auto insurance for the uniocular blinded policy holder.
