Can I just cover my dominant eye with a bandage and wear glasses to force my nondominant eye to focus?

In brief: Lengthy time

The dominant eye is the guiding eye for focus and tracking.
The focus shifts to the non-dominant eye when the dominant is covered. To force the non-dominant to become dominant requires continuous loss of the dominant eye for a years' time. This is an issue with eye injury, why would you want this shift to take place otherwise.
