I'm experimenting with a setup like you are asking about. I am right eye dominant, but the left eye does take over occasionally. I use a corrected lens on the right side in light target orange with a -.5 diopter correction and a plano dark purple lens on the left side. It seems to help me, but you have to get used to the comments "hey you got your lenses mixed up".
Hope this works. The key here is the section that says " the effect of monocular blurr and decreased luminance via filter". A neutral density filter for our purposes is simply a grey sunglass lens. Basically if you see the histograms there was a dramatic shift in dominancy with the grey lens. Decreasing the vision all the way to 20/200(legal blindness) made no difference. I have been playing with this for the last two years with mixed results. I can demonstrate a dramatic difference with certain people...........Rich

PURPOSE: To develop a functional MRI method for producing eye dominance histograms in humans at 1.5 Tesla (T). METHODS: In the first set of experiments, 8 normal persons were tested. The eye dominance of each voxel within the person's visually activated primary visual cortex was determined with Student t statistics during a left eye versus right eye contrast. Eye dominance distribution was plotted, and the mean t statistic was used to describe the histogram asymmetry. In the second set of experiments, the effect of monocular optical blur and decreased luminance via filter was studied, and eye dominance distributions were similarly determined. RESULTS: The eye dominance histogram in each of the 8 normals was approximately symmetric; the average mean t value was +0.13. All 4 subjects with the right eye blurred had histograms approximately symmetric or slightly shifted toward the left eye (average mean t = +0.56), and all 4 subjects with the right eye filtered had histograms dramatically shifted toward the left eye (average mean t = +2.22). The average mean t for the group with the right eye filtered was significantly different from that of the other 2 groups (P <.0001). CONCLUSIONS: With noninvasive methods in normal persons, functional magnetic resonance imaging techniques at 1.5 T were able to characterize the distribution of eye dominance of voxels in primary visual cortex, based upon their t statistic in the left eye versus right eye contrast. The method is sensitive to filtering but relatively insensitive to visual blur. This approach may have a future use in the study of amblyopia in humans.

If you wear contact lenses, try not wearing the lens for the non-target eye. The blurred vision accomplishes the same thing as the tape. Just be careful not to trip over the gun rack on the way back to the clubhouse.
