I got the idea for this from here:

https://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/942165-valkyria-chronicles/47636290

The explanation for Zaka's always closed eye seems to be that since his mechanic job always has him working with small machine parts, he needs to shut one eye to focus his vision and be able to see with the other eye more clearly. That's an interesting explanation, but does it work like that in real life? I know some mechanics who don't always close one eye. And I don't see how the habit would be advantageous when you're at war and you need to be able to see the enemy from far away. Is this just an example of anime tropes being silly, or is there a hint of realism here?

I'm no optician but I would say realism. Humans are supposed to have a dominant eye (it's the left eye for me) and when you try to focus on a very close object or look through a hole, you usually use that dominant eye and close the other.

I don't need to shut one eye to work on a computer or look at small things. When you shut one eye you lose clarity because your brain interpolates higher resolution if you have two images to work with. I do shut one eye to fire guns though many people don't. I would think the soldiers would get squintier if this is what causes it. I never tried peeping at girls through holes before tee hee.
