It does in a way. It means that when you turn your head you still have your dominant eye on the ball even if you turn your head too much sideways and block the back eye with the bridge of your nose.

However, the back eye is what is most important as it is the eye measuring the depth of the ball. Close off this eye and people tend to swing too soon. Although your left eye may not be dominant, it sounds like your back eye for the backhand is also strong in reading depth.

Keep your face open to the ball so both eyes have a clear shot at the ball.
