can your right eye the same as your left?

Essentially: The basic visual functions of most people with normal eyes are evenly matched. There can be subtle differences in color depth of view and either the left or the right eye will be a 'dominant' eye in fixations such as aiming a telescope. A few of course have developmental, or refractive or disease differences cause major differences between the eyes.
