Any individual that exhibits physiologic superiority and priority, or preference behaviors in any bilateral structure is referred to as dominant. When thinking about the target sport in sports, hand and eye dominance might be a crucial performance factor. In this study, the association between performance in target sports and dominant eye and hand dominance is examined in order to determine whether visual dominance will be added as a new criterion for performance. Utilizing the terms archery, biathlon, shooting, dart and air-shooting as well as the keywords dominant eye, ocular dominance, dominant eye dominant hand laterality. The search was conducted in the databases “PubMed, Google Scholar, Elsevier ScienceDirect and Web of Science” on the online library pages of Yeditepe University. The words or for status of domination and between targeted sports categories were entered in the search keywords. By using keywords to search the databases, 604 articles were found. Since they have scoped various themes and assessment criteria, the found publications were discarded and reduced to seven studies with duplicates removed. The results of the gathered research allow it to be established that there is no correlation among hand laterality and achieving ocular domination in the targeted sports, to reach consensus on the effect of dominance on outcomes in the chosen sports, more research is necessary.
