    Question Is archery possible with this eye syndrome?

    I'm extremely interested in starting archery, but is it still possible for me to do so with Duane's syndrome?

    Meaning that my left eye cannot move left; my right eye is normal though. (This isn't me, but here's an example of what happens when my eyes look left: http://s3.hubimg.com/u/821146_f260.jpg)

    So I don't know how this will affect my head and arm positions. Also I'm right-handed.

    Shouldn't be a problem since you will be shooting right handed and using your right eye. I close by left eye when shooting.

    if you shoot with both eyes open like I do it might cause some issues seeing how both eyes cant focus on same spot. I agree close left eye or I see alot of tourney shooters use a hat/eye patch thats clips to the visor of the hat and flips down to cover one eye... good luck !

    Thumbs up

    Ive seen videos of folks shooting without arms, I dont think you should have a problem if you want it bad enough. Happy shooting.
