Lived my whole life with sight in just one eye, honestly it's grand, your brain adjusts and you learn to compensate for certain things, like... when someone lobs you a ball you learn how to perfectly... duck out of the way, rather than try and fail to catch it :D

Also video games are great with just 1 eye because everything is on a flat panel with just an illusion of depth :) my world is the same as what you see on your monitor basically.

That said.... I am very very careful obviously to mind my remaining eye... the thought of it being damaged in a accident of any kind is a huge worry to me.



@OP should I technically vote for losing hearing? because if I lost sight in one eye... I would be fresh out of eyes.

Yes I think you should technically vote for losing hearing!  Unless you would prefer being blind over being deaf.

I think you are the first person in here to have a legit reason for not losing sight in one eye!

Indeed if I was going into an accident and could some how choose to lose my remaining eye or lose my hearing I would happily choose to be deaf in an instant. I've lived 34 years with sound and could frankly have a few quiet years. I couldn't enjoy what I do without my vision.

Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games?

Well if I lose one eye, the other eye will have to work extra hard and probably soon go out as well.

Hearing and then wait for a scientific break through.

Can one eyed people drive?

Thats the only possible downside, but this is easy.

Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

I rest my case.

Yes one eye people can drive.

Just closed one of my eyes to test. Not that bad actually. Don't even know why i've got 2 eyes... Maybe it's in case someone asks me if I'd rather lose sight in one eye or lose my hearing entirely.

Lose sight in one eye. That's a very easy choice for me honestly.
