Historically speaking, that's how ship captains navigated with early
sextants. Over time they ended up with one more or less dead eye which
was only useful for staring into the sun. The eye patch wasn't because
he lost it in a fight.

I wouldn't personally want to try it, but not everything that seems
like it would be absurd in all cases actually is.
