Most are set for right-eye for a few key reasons:
* Most people are right-handed
* Most cameras are made to be used with the right hand
* When using a camera with your right hand, it is to the right of your face (usually on your right shoulder)
* If you would use your left eye, your right eye would be completely unable to see out, and if you were shooting something potentially dangerous, you would not be able to notice and avoid on-coming objects or simply your next shot in a non-dangerous situation.
